About Us 

Located on the campus of Norwich Free Academy, the Slater Museum awakens visitors to the richness and diversity of the human experience through art and history. For more than one hundred years, the Museum has displayed and interpreted the best examples of fine and decorative art, representing a broad range of world cultures of the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Africa.

Dedicated in 1888 and housed in a stunning Romanesque Revival building, the Slater's local collection represents 300 years of Norwich history. Included are 18th - 20th century American paintings and decorative arts, including contemporary Connecticut crafts, 17th - 19th century European paintings and decorative arts, African and Oceanic sculpture, Native American objects, and a plaster cast collection of Egyptian, Archaic, Greek, Roman and Renaissance sculpture. The adjacent Converse Art Gallery hosts six changing exhibitions throughout the year.
