Visitor Tips

On the main floor of the William E. Telling Mansion, guests will find the Main Gallery, the Legacy Gallery, the MAPA Library, and the MAPA Gift Shop. The Living Room, Sunroom, Greenhouse, and Den are also used for exhibits, programs, and events.


Due to the delicate nature of the art, we cannot allow handbags or backpacks in the galleries. We have lockers available for guests to use, or guests may leave their belongings in their vehicles.  MAPA has coat racks available for guest usage.


MAPA is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Children under the age of 13 must be with an adult.


First time visitors are encouraged to join a Public Tour prior to exploring the galleries for background on the art.  This video last approximately 15 minutes and rotates throughout the day.


Photographs are encouraged, but we ask that photography equipment be kept in a locker or vehicle.


While you’re here, visit the MAPA Gift Shop for a unique gift for a special someone…or for yourself!
