TarraWarra Museum of Art is an art museum in Tarrawarra, Victoria, 45 kilometres northeast of Melbourne. Founded by philanthropists and art collectors Eva and Marc Besen, it is the first museum of art in Australia supported by a significant private endowment.
TarraWarra Museum of Art Limited was registered in 2000. The museum was then formally launched by Prime Minister John Howard on 24 April 2002 in a temporary location in North Melbourne, awaiting completion of a purpose-built museum in the Yarra Valley. The Tarrawarra museum building, designed by Alan Powell from architecture firm Powell & Glenn, was opened in 2003. The museum engages with art, place and ideas.
