Wide ranging collection; interesting range of architecture within and without. Nice museum store also.
The free movie series continued at 2:00 PM again this Sunday. The Serbian comedy,"Parade"will appeal to any adult of whatever persuasion.The explanation by the Serbian artist Marcos & the clue to some of the dialogue enabled me to believe I was hearing & not reading it. My guffaws were not sounded alone. It even was well timed to the bus... More
Having lived an hour away from the Wadsworth for the past 10 years, I'm embarrassed to say that I've never been. My father and I went recently and were really, really impressed. Admission is only $10, and the 3-4 floors of art are very manageable in an afternoon. Some of the highlights are the Hudson River School paintings and the... More
The permanent exhibit is good but the temp exhibit have been great the few times we have visited. The Christmas trees are always a great way to get into the spirit of the holiday

I have been to the Atheneum for several years. The exhibits are great for a smaller museum and the tours are very good. The Christmas Tree extravaganza is really enjoyable during the holidays.
A super museum with a superb collection. The paintings were clean and well displayed. We were surprised to see the extent of the collection. From the 1500s to contemporary art. A beautiful collection of American artists from the 1800s, so much there, we spent 3 hours with a stop in the cafe for lunch wondering the museum. The cafe had... More
