About Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum:
Pyramid Hill’s 10,000 square foot Ancient Sculpture Museum displays Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Etruscan sculptures dating to 1550 B.C. The newly created Museum Gallery is an exhibition space dedicated to featuring different local and regional artists each month. Both serve as juxtapositions to the large, modern outdoor sculptures across the more than 300-acre park. Pyramid Hill’s mission is bringing people to art in nature, and its vision is to inspire and educate its diverse visitors in a world-renowned setting of art and nature and to be a catalyst for dialog, collaboration and contemplation.
