This place houses inventive, cutting edge artistic works in a gorgeous, renovated factory. This iconic site proves we must stop tearing down America's architecture gems and refurbish them instead!

We made our first visit to Mass MoCA during this year's Solid Sound festival. Thus is a great venue. Really interesting grounds that is almost as great as the art in display.

The Mass MOCA is a great museum with a world class level of exhibitions. The museum space, which occupies old factory space is huge--I believe it is the largest exhibition space in North America. The art work rotates so much depends on what is showing at the moment, but the curation is always interesting. The space is enormous which means... More

We never tire of Mass MoCa. Recent Solid SOund festival brought us back to this gem of a place. The art work is always fascinating and the environment is challenging. What a fantastic place for a festival.

The photo- graphic display of a Colorado mountain by Clifford Ross is inspired and inspiring. The associated montage of videos is spectacular. Our itinerary did not fit with any of the special events at Mass MOCA, but music, food, outdoor installations, etc. should be attended if possible. Overall, Mass MOCA continues to grow in a huge post-industrial location, linking a... More

How much you like this place may depend on how much you appreciate contemporary art. For me, most of what I've seen at Mass Moca is intriguing and memorable, some has seemed pretentious. Others may have those ratios opposite. Even so, the experience is the museum is unique, in its industrial factory setting, nestled in the mountains.

Great museum and atmosphere or the money. I highly recommend trying-out the museum for yourself. It's one of the best I've ever gone to. Thank you.

Beautiful museum in an old textile plant. will be the largest contemporary art museum in the country by 2017. Definitely worth the visit if you are in the area for any other reason.
