Our Mission

The Whistler House Museum of Art is committed to

  • preserving the birthplace of James McNeill Whistler, one of America’s premier artists;
  • raising awareness in the Greater Merrimack River Valley about the history of the house itself and the works of its original residents, innovators of the American Industrial Revolution;
  • educating the public about 19th Century American art and promoting current research and exhibitions related to Whistler, the house, Lowell and regional artists.
