Art Complex Museum

The Art Complex Museum, located in the historic town of Duxbury, Massachusetts, 33 miles (53 km) south of Boston, serves as a regional arts center and houses the impressive collection of the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser family.

Situated on over 13 acres (53,000 m2) of woodland and open fields, the handicapped accessible museum opened in 1971. In addition to a gallery for rotating objects from the permanent collection, and exhibitions spaces that feature painting, sculpture, prints and craft objects created by contemporary artists, the museum houses the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Reference Library of over 5,000 publications. Located on the grounds is a Japanese tea hut, part of the museum's Asian collection.

The museum offers a year-round schedule of exhibitions, lectures, concerts, classes, education programs, demonstrations, and tea ceremonies fulfilling the founders' vision that their family's many interests be shared with the community as the Weyerhaeuser family envisioned.
