After living in the Hagerstown area for more than three decades, I entered the little museum and discovered what I had missed for so long. It is simply put. . .priceless! Even if you're not too into history (which I am), the beautiful art can make one forget time. Since discovering the museum, we have literally spent hours there. Don't... More

Unbelievable that this place had original paintings and allowed a bunch of geocachers to visit to find clues for a geocache! It was the most pleasant surprise for me the geocacher, and hubby the artist. Don't miss this museum on your visit.

The art is beautiful.. the courtyards are very well lit with a sky view... The museum staff could have been a little more friendlier ( there was a lady with an attitude.. that doesnt fly with me) Otherwise a beautiful museum with beautiful artwork

We came to visit the Hager House but it was closed so we walked into this museum. It was great. It's not big but it has some really great items and the descriptions of the items were pretty good. We highly recommend stopping here if you are in the area. The surrounding park made for a pleasant walk as well.

When one leaves a city like Washington, DC, and moves near a town like Hagerstown, Maryland, one does not expect what we found in this museum. This is a return-to-frequently destination for us. It is truly amazing to have such breadth and beauty in a collection in a small city. It is truly a miniature of the National Gallery of... More

Described as an outstanding but smaller art museum, this lovely building in the City Park, beautifully situated on the large lagoon, offers the opportunity to enjoy a range of artistic works.There is no entry fee (suggested donation $ 5.00/person) and ample free parking. Allow an hour minimum; 90 minutes is probably more realistic especially if you spend time in the... More

Location is easy to access, as is the museum's collection, which is quite outstanding for a small, boutique-like entity. From medieval portraits to original Rodin(s) and a Rockwell; luminists to sculptures to glassware and silver. Docents are available, even eager, to engage w/ visitors and answer questions. "Art is in the eye of the beholder" is certainly in play here,... More

Take a friend with you to this art museum, better yet take a date who loves to shop. Visit this place, first. Walk a few blocks in the downtown district and pick a place to stop and eat. Afterwards go to the outlet stores. You will leave, not only with the goods bought in stores but with the feeling that... More

It is not your typical large city art museum, but is full of many fine examples of art from local to historical inside a wonderful building on a lovely site. it takes about 1-2 hours to walk through the dozen or so rooms depending on your interests. This was our last stop before leaving the city and was well worth... More
