In addition to the Bates College Museum of Art and a 300-seat concert hall, Olin houses a slide library, classrooms, faculty offices, individual and group practice rooms for musicians, art studios (including a drawing studio with a panoramic view of Lake Andrews), and two photographic darkrooms.

Through its temporary exhibitions and the permanent collection, as well as programming and education outreach, the Museum of Art is an integral part of the intellectual and cultural life of the college and region.
