Who We Are


Hurricane Ian Update: We will be closed on Wednesday, 9/28, and Thursday, 9/29. We believe in proceeding with an abundance of caution and take our responsibility to our staff and exhibiting artists very seriously. We plan to re-open at 10 a.m. Friday, weather permitting.

Come for an hour & leave inspired!

Plan Your Visit

The Ormond Beach Memorial Art Museum & Gardens was founded in 1946 with a mission to inspire the community through art and nature while honoring those who fought for freedom.

Work by prominent national and international artists are featured in exhibitions throughout the year, in addition to an annual student show and other pop-ups highlighting talented local artists. The exhibit calendar is varied and includes works in all mediums and styles. The museum also has a rotating selection of spiritual oil paintings from the Malcolm Fraser Permanent Collection on display in the reception gallery.

In May 2022, the museum building re-opened after a 16-month renovation and expansion project. Built on almost the same existing museum footprint, OMAM now offers a bigger classroom, more exhibition space, dedicated meeting/office areas, and a rooftop terrace overlooking the gardens!

Every trip to the museum should include a stroll through the lush memorial gardens, which provide an opportunity for reflection. Two original sculptures honoring veterans of the Korean and Vietnam Wars are on display in the gardens, and a plaque listing three local residents who gave their lives in World War I is mounted on the wall near the American flag pole in the courtyard pavilion. A bronze commemorative plaque listing all Ormond residents who served in World War II is housed inside the Museum.
