It’s also home to our state-of-the-art Conservation Lab where the treasures of the Museum, Ca' d’Zan, Circus Museum and Historic Asolo Theater are preserved and protected. The Education Center provides classroom space for adult and children’s programming that enriches and enlivens interest in art, as well as the offices of Executive Director Steven High and his supporting staff.
