This museum is right on route 2 - the main road through the WIlliams campus and WIlliamstown, and yet you can drive right by without realizing it. There is limited parking near the entrance, but it's also a nice walk from the main strip of shops and eateries - Spring Street. Admission is free, the art is modern, the staff... More

Good visit, varied art, note this is a college campus some art may invoke conversation with children and teens

Sometimes you get what you pay for. We were disappointed in this museum. Might be fun for younger visitors. Quirky anyway.

Don't miss this art museum! It's located in the center of town, it's free and it has a very interesting exhibitions. I think it's a "must see" in Williamstown. We've been there a few times and we were always satisfied. The layout of the museum is beautiful and spacious.

Although the Clark Institute is well-known, WCMA is too often overlooked by art lovers. It's the most creatively curated of the Berkshire County museums.

Exhibits superbly laid out in this modern museum. Free entry and well worth a visit. Almost exclusively modern art so traditionalists may not enjoy!

Small, lovely museum right in the center of the Williams campus. Very interesting African American art exhibit when I visited. Some of the original Founding Fathers documents are worth a view as well. Quick visit, but nice collection.

This is a "must see" when you visit Williamstown. We've been there several times for different exhibits, and they are always exceptional. The layout of the museum is beautiful, spacious, and airy. It's a comfortable size to get through and still have time to check out the shop without feeling overwhelmed. We've been to all the surrounding museums and galleries,... More

This museum is free and open to the public. The staff was informative and friendly. We saw the Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles i960 - 1980. This was a pretty large collection with mixed art forms. It was well received. Would recommend.

What a surprisingly wonderful museum. Don't let the Clark overshadow this. Though it's small, there was plenty to see; in fact, we wound up coming a second time to make sure we'd covered it all. And free admission to boot!
