Longview Museum of Fine Arts is home to nearly 1,200 works of art including paintings, woodcuts, photographs, sculpture, lithographs, serigraphs, collages, and works on paper. The collection is centered around early Texas regional art from the 1930s and 1970s.
Each year, the museum brings in culturally and historically significant works from the 19th century to the present and curates exhibitions featuring Texas-based artists, emerging contemporary artists from across the United States, internationally established artists, and students from the East Texas region.
Walk-ins are encouraged and welcomed for groups of less than 20. Please call ahead if your group is more than 20 to ensure there is not a school tour or private event in session.

Our tours are designed to expand critical and creative thinking and encourage the next generation of artists and art enthusiasts to develop an appreciation for the visual arts. Using a variety of evidence-based strategies, students explore works of art, make connections with their personal experiences, and apply their visual literacy skills in accordance to TEKS curricular standards. Tours start at $1 per student and $2 per adult with the option of adding on a hands-on art project for an additional fee. For pricing and scheduling, please call 903-753-8103.
