History

The Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science is a community resource for visual arts, science exploration, and humanities education - providing cultural understanding in support of lifelong learning. With two floors of innovative science interactivity as well as a third floor dedicated to Art, displaying the miraculous works from the likes of the great Rembrandt to Van Gogh, The Brogan Museum instills culture and inspires patrons of all ages to "imagine the possibilities."

The Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science resulted from a merger between The Museum of Art/Tallahassee and the Odyssey Science Center in 2000. The two former organizations were created independently in 1980 and 1991 respectively, and agreed to share a common building, open to the public in 1998. The building is on land belonging to the City of Tallahassee and the Museum executed a transfer of its sub-lease to Tallahassee Community College from Leon Country Schools in 2003.

The Brogan Museum was awarded its Smithsonian "Implementation" documentation on March 18, 2004. The Brogan Museum's status as a Smithsonian Affiliate allows us to borrow significant objects for the benefit of the communities we serve.
