The A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery, a 8,000 sq. ft. public visual arts facility, was established in 1960 by A.E. Backus and a group of local art enthusiasts. Open five days a week from October through mid-June (summer hours by appointment) the museum features the Nation's largest display of original paintings by Albert Ernest Backus (American 1906 – 1990). The museum also handles consignment sales of Backus paintings as well as other Treasure Coast artists of merit. Four additional exhibition wings feature changing exhibits of artwork by contemporary artists. Located in historic downtown Fort Pierce, the museum is a worthwhile stop on any visitor's itinerary. The museum's ample free parking provides convenient access to other area attractions, casual waterside dining and boutique shopping.
