Welcome to the Charles E. Gagnon Museum & Sculpture Garden! The home and studio provides a tranquil environment for you to enjoy beautiful examples of Chuck's figurative sculpture. Guided by his wife, Arlyn, you will experience the sculptor's home as he knew it. The former dining room and Peace Gallery display uplifting sculptures, and the West Gallery overlooks the Enlargement Studio. On the lower level, you will see the progression of Gagnon's sculpture through the Legacy Display and East Gallery. From May 15 through October 15, you are also encouraged to walk through our Sculpture Garden. The museum welcomes all to heal and experience art through sculpture. 

Tours are available BY ONLINE REGISTRATION ONLY. Click on the link to schedule your visit today!
