Weekends are the best time to visit due to very limited parking when classes are in session. The one way street, south of the museum marked as P11 and R11 on the parking map, is the easiest place to park an RV. Museum 40.19855, -85.41011

David Owsley Museum of Art
Ball State University owes it’s existence to the Ball family, manufacturers of Ball brand mason jars, who bought and donated a foreclosed teacher’s college to the state of Indiana in 1917. Several members of the family became enthusiastic art collectors, eventually donating over 3,000 pieces to the art museum. The museum’s collection is extensive and includes Ancient, African, Asian, Oceanic, American, European, and Modern and Contemporary art.
The museum is accessible. The only entrance with a ramp is on Riverside Ave.
