The Muscarelle Museum of Art is located on the campus of The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. The origins of the collection can be traced to 1732, when the third Earl of Burlington gave The College of William & Mary a portrait of the physicist Robert Boyle. Since that time, the collection has grown to over 4000 works of art encompassing a diverse group of objects from antiquity to the present, Eastern and Western art, and examples of almost every material and medium.

Of particular note are Colonial American and 17th and 18th century English portraits, a survey collection of original prints and drawings from the 16th through the 20th centuries, a selection of Japanese prints, a collection of German Expressionist works by Hans Grohs, and the Jean Outland Chrysler collection of American Abstract Expressionism.
