About MABA

Gallery interior at the Museum of American Bird Art

The Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon (MABA) is a professional art museum within New England’s largest conservation organization, connecting people and nature through art. Our exhibitions feature art by internationally recognized artists inspired by nature.

Located on a 121-acre wildlife sanctuary 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 education programs.


Programs are offered in many formats, including hands-on art classes in drawing, photography, watercolor, and other mediums; gallery talks and nature exploration. On- and off-site programs serve children, adults, families, and school and community groups.
