Hidden in the woods adjacent to the Tanglewood Campus, we participated in a guided tour of this 1930 artist estate. The contemporary studio and residential building -- apparently the first one built in New England, is full of contemporary art by the two owners and other better known artists, like Miro and Picasso. Many walls are also decorated with frescoes,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative review. The modernist architecture houses and displays the well-known Cubist artists you mentioned. We hope you can return August 14th at 3pm when noted architectural historian Richard Guy Wilson will be giving a slide lecture "The International Style of Architecture". More

This is an interesting house with a background and a story that should be better taken advantage of. The guided tour was good but could have been more comprehensive about the couple who lived here and their art. The documentary film would have been interesting, but it is located in a separate building with no attendants. When we entered, the... More

Thank you for your interest in the House and your visit. The 58 minute documentary is set up on a continuous loop in the Classroom in the renovated Barn as an added activity for visitors who may be early for their hourly guided tours. Sorry the timing did not work for you this time but the DVD is available for... More

A secret jewel in the Berkshires. This museum requires a little effort to visit and isn't an ideal family day as I think small kids would find the occasional waits, endless talking and lack of action to be tedious. But for adults and artistically-minded teens, I think it's a treasure. One must park in the carpark and take a golf-cart-trolley... More

It was nice to see the house but very limiting. The artists themselves where not my favorite modern art style. The house itself seems a very impractical design. I found myself drawn to the parents mansion on the hill more. It is nice that they have artists painting and sharing outside.

What an amazing place to visit and tour! The surrounding grounds are gorgeous. This former home of Suzy Frelinghuysen and George Morris is a true American gem. The married couple (artists themselves) became involved in promoting, developing and collecting abstract art in the 1930s-40s. At one time, the two were very well-known, but today, not so much. So for me,... More

My nephew pointed the way on our visit to the Berkshires to this artists' home and we found it absorbing. I was vaguely familiar with Morris but not Frelinghuysen. Our guide was informative and excellent in guiding us through the house and artworks. (She was patient with our questions.) If you don't have the time to see the film when... More

So it's true but neither of us knew anything about either of the two artists from this house, but somehow we did expect a little bit more based on other reviews that we read. It wasn't very exciting it wasn't very interesting and our host wasn't very welcoming or even very nice

This house and studio tour was very interesting. You tour the house escorted by a docent who is quite knowledgeable about the Frelinghuysens. You can also walk around the very pretty gardens. Parking is a ways away from the actual touring spot. This may be interesting for older children as well as adults. There's a shuttle that will take you... More

This museum is an amazing little gem in a 1940's Bauhaus style house located in Lenox Massachusetts right near the grounds of Tanglewood. The collection in the house mostly consists of George and Suzy's works but other master works are scattered throughout the rooms. We went to see the house and studio but before the house tour we sat in... More

The architecture, art and furniture are a testimony to Modernism. What a great find. Well worth a visit.
