The Attleboro Arts Museum today works toward the revitalization of the City of Attleboro by enabling the public to access artifacts and items that educate on the city's culture and history.

The Museum was founded by a group of Attleboro residents who got together in 1923. Since major manufacturing companies operate within the city, which is also inhabited by many wealthy residents, it was able to gather a lot of support and art works from these generous entities. It housed a substantial collection of Native American artifacts gathered by local archeologist Maurice Robbins within the area.

In the early 1950s the Museum has become a significant institution in the society by offering exposure to art and art education.

Today, the Museum continues to offer exhibitions and displays featuring evolving and professional artists. The Museum boasts of a 3,500-square foot of gallery space, which high ceilings and moveable gallery walls.

The Museum also hosts special events every year. This includes the annual Art Auction and Flower Show. It also offers programs that strengthen the residents' connection to their heritage.
