Demuth Museum in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, United States, is a museum of paintings by Charles Demuth (1883–1935) located in his former studio and home at 120 East King Street.[1] The museum offers a rotating view of a permanent collection which includes 42 Charles Demuth originals as well as artists and works that present a Demuth connection in the areas of theme, technique and epoch. Two recent exhibitions have featured Demuth contemporaries Alfred H. Maurer and Lyonel Feininger.[2]

Admission is free. Every first weekend in June is the annual Demuth garden tour, which includes the Victorian garden at the museum, and about twenty other town and country gardens from which Demuth drew inspiration.
