Mission & Vision

Our Mission

To inspire and educate through art, nature and history

Our Vision

Fruitlands will be known as a majestic gathering place that builds connections between nature, people and culture.  Recognized nationally and loved locally for its engaging exhibitions and programs, the museum will serve as a catalyst for creativity and the development of curious minds for audiences of all ages.  Fruitlands will be a welcoming oasis at the center of a community that will gather to learn, celebrate, and renew.
