Welcome! Admission is free. The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art collects art of the region and brings art and artists from around the world to the heart of Kansas. We aim to be a place where you can explore, discover, and reflect – with friends and family or on your own.

We are located at 701 Beach Lane (14th St. and Anderson Ave.) on the Kansas State University campus in Manhattan, Kansas. See directions, accessibility, and parking for further details.
