There is always an interesting exhibit here. Just missed the "bang on a can" festival. If you are open to new and different ideas, this is the place for you.

I loved the Sol Lewitt installation (huge) and will return in the years ahead to see it again. Also loved the Airstream trailer. It's not a museum for people with mobility limitations, but if you can walk, and you're open-minded about art, there's a lot to love here.

Having visited many contemporary art museums throughout the US and Europe, this museum is my favorite. The Sol LeWitt exhibit that was installed in 2008 and will remain for 30 years is just phenomenal. This is worth the trip to Williamstown (stay here - not in North Adams) alone. In addition to lots of other marvelous works, the space the... More

What a great museum! Even if you are not an art lover, you will enjoy just wandering the rooms and how they incorporated art into this old warehouse. An amazing use of space!

Mass MoCa is really wonderful museum in a very special environment. Housed in a series of sprawling factory buildings, it must have been a city unto itself in the late 1800's early 1900's. Exhibits were wonderful and displays simply gigantic in some areas. Art ranges from practical to offbeat to incredible. Just a great place to visit with two days... More

Great exercise to walk all around this large exhibition. It is huge and is a maze of rooms, stairs, buildings changing from different artists and styles, applications. Usually some mixed media with audio, video etc. good cafe and restaurant on location too.

Renovated textile factory with plenty of free parking. Small cafe and gift shop. Spacious exhibit areas containing very creative multi media artists, paintings, video, sculptures, etc. Definitely worth the visit.

This is a remarkable venue in a beautiful area. A defunct mill has been re-purposed into a unique museum experience. They seem to specialize in over-sized installations like you (or at least I've) never seen. They also host a fair amount of music including music festivals. The music events I've attended are the most smoothly run events I've even encountered.... More

The space of this museum is magnificent. It houses some truly outstanding large sized contemporary works of art. There was a nice variety of "types" of contemporary exhibits up as well which is great for the visitor that is unsure about how to view current art forms. In addition, there is an inexpensive cafe in the lobby that is great... More
