Our collection: ToyGantic Collections

The Beach Museum of Art collects visual art in various media, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, and glass. With minor exceptions, the museum's collecting focus is on the art of Kansas and the region. Works on paper (photographs, drawings, and prints) constitute the largest group of works in the collection and cover a wider range of American art. Four galleries are devoted to art from the permanent collections. Admission is free and free gallery tours are available by advance request.
