Located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, Brunnier Art Museum is the state's only accredited museum presenting a decorative arts collection. It was established in 1975, and is named after its benefactors, Iowa State alumnus Henry J. Brunnier and his wife Ann.

The museum’s Brunnier Collection includes ceramics, glass, dolls, ivory, jade, and enameled metals. Prints, paintings, sculptures, textiles, carpets, wood objects, lacquered pieces, silver, and furniture are counted among the holdings of the museum.

Current exhibits include the artwork of Amy Namowitz Worthen - a well known Des Moines, Iowa, printmaker; lithographic prints by Ulfert Wilke, silver artifacts that reflect the historical and cultural significances; prints by Jay N. “Ding” Darling; oil paintings, 18th- to 20th-century prints; ceramics; decorative arts, and festival dolls from Japan; the Christian Petersen Collection; and two large-scale preparatory drawings for murals.

Lectures, receptions, conferences, university classes, panel discussions, gallery walks, and gallery talks are offered. Through changing exhibits and permanent exhibits, the museum provides educational opportunities for people of all ages.
