Our Mission

The purpose of our museum is to preserve, for public education and enjoyment, the boyhood home of Robert Henri (Robert Henry Cozad) and increase understanding and appreciation of fine arts in our area by exhibiting exemplary works and collecting art work by Robert Henri.

The Robert Henri Museum is located in the childhood home of the well-known American painter and art instructor, Robert Henri. The museum collection includes several pieces of original Henri family furniture and belongings as well as sketches and prints of some of Henri’s most famous works.
