It is the largest art museum between "Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Richmond" and contains numerous collections, exhibitions, education programs and nature trails that sprawl on a 52-acre (210,000 m2) campus. The collections include American and European paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, as well as glass pieces manufactured in West Virginia and the Ohio Valley, American folk art, Chinese and Japanese decorative items, 18th and early 19th century British silver, Haitian art, firearms, and material culture objects from the Near East.
