Peto’s Studio and Permanent Collection Tour

Join us at the historic home of the artist John F. Peto for a docent-led tour of the Museum’s permanent collection of 22 of the artist’s original paintings. A highlight of the tour is a visit to Peto’s studio, which looks exactly as it did when he painted there from 1880 until his death in 1907. Because the home was maintained for so many years by the Peto family, many of the artist’s (and his extended family’s) belongings and furnishings, and the objects used in the paintings, remain in the home and are displayed as historical artifacts of the Island Heights arts community from the 1800’s.  Peto was not only a painter, but also a photographer, and he has left behind a priceless photographic record as well, which depicts the quiet life he made for himself and his family in Ocean County.



Private or group tours are available.
To schedule call 732-929-4949 or email info@petomuseum.org.

Masks or face coverings are required when entering the Museum, regardless of vaccination status.
