In this restored 1833 neoclassical mansion (235 Lake St., at W. Gray St., 607/734-3697, www.arnotartmuseum.org , 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Tues.–Sat., 1–5 p.m. Sun., adults $5, seniors and students $4.50, children 6–12 $2.50) hangs a fine collection of 17th- to 19th-century European and 19th- to 20th-century American paintings.
At the heart of the collection are works acquired by Matthias Arnot in the late 1800s. Among them are paintings by Breughel, Daubigny, Rousseau, and Millet, hung floor to ceiling in the old salon style.
Behind the mansion, a handsome modern wing houses both temporary exhibitions and rotating selections from the museum’s Asian, Egyptian, and pre-Columbian collections.
