The Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon (MABA) is a professional art museum and wildlife sanctuary. As part of New England's largest conservation organization, we seek to connect people with the nature around them through art.
Located on a beautiful 121-acre property just south of Boston, MABA houses Mass Audubon's extensive art collection, which is shared with the public through exhibitions as well as through a wide variety of educational programs for all ages. The exhibitions in our galleries feature art by internationally-recognized artists whose work is inspired by nature.
