The Charles E. Gagnon museum and Sculpture Garden is Rochester's crown jewel of cultural institutions. Here you can learn more about the exceptional bronze sculptures of Charles Eugene Gagnon. When Chuck passed away in 2012, the museum was founded to honor his legacy of 50 creative years in bronze sculpture. Our residence houses his studio and bronze sculptures created by this Minnesotan sculptor. Our home and studios provides a tranquil environment to enjoy beautiful examples of Chucks figurative sculpture. You can experience a sense of the museums special ambience on our scheduled tours.
