IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE

This year, Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History will be known as the Nelson Museum, Archives, and Gallery. This change signifies our alignment with the international museum sector, which embraces clarity to better support access, inclusion, and decolonization.

We are developing a new brand identity, launching fall 2022.
