Took a day-trip out to North Adams recently to visit Mass MoCA. We had been before, but never had enough time to really explore the place. Three hours did it for us; and we were able to relax through the exhibits, appreciate the very cool renovated space, and create some art of our own in the kids' workspace. My family... More

MassMOCA is a huge gallery featuring very large works by current artists. It is set in an old teextile factory with huge spaces that allow this type of art to be exhibited and it works beautifully. The galleries are huge, as are the works of art. How much you enjoy the exhibits probably depends on your taste and what is... More

Several of the new exhibits are easier to understand and interpret by left-brained people like myself. There have been times that I've visited here and had no clue what many of the pieces meant. It was a lot easier this time, especially "Untethered" by Ran Hwang, Walk In My Shoes and Clifford Ross: Landscape Seen and Imagined. These were especially... More

The museum had wonderful contemporary exhibits and the Kidspace area was a delightful find. My children loved all the wonderful activities that the staff helped them create. It was hard to pull them away when we had to leave.

I love MASS MoCA and not just because i'm a local. If you love seeing unique art then this museum is the place for you! It has many floors of artwork along with art outside of the building. They just keep expanding and they use their space in very creative ways. The events held there are wonderful too. You can... More

For a while I heard a lot about this great museum of contemporary art, an Art Icon around the corner. Finally when my sister, a renowned artist in her own right, came to visit us I planned a family tour. I packed my family, all of whom are involved in art, and my sister's family and we all caravanned to... More

One complaint I often have about museums is that they are too large and in an effort to see everything, you end up tired and bored. This museum I like a lot because it is a more reasonable size. The Sol LeWitt exhibit is fun and great for all ages. Only major complaint is that the cafe seemed incredibly unorganized.... More

One of my favorite museums in America. The installations were great. Staff are always wonderful, receptive and educated. I'll go back any time I'm in the area.
