Very nice collection of contemporary art and work by American authors. Go to the Clark and then to the college. A great way to spend a rainy day.

What a surprise this was! There were wonderful exhibits - both permanent and temporary - and the space was quite impressive. And FREE. We were very happy we made this unexpected stop while there, on our way to the Clark.

A first visit for my sister, who was very impressed with the quality and diversity (Warhol, Prendergasts, Homer/Iliad) of the small museum, as both me and my husband had recommended!

This is a wonderful - and free - museum. Currently showing an interesting exhibit of Warhol and books. Very interesting other side to him. Free parking right out front on the lovely campus.

This place is a real gem. Wonderful collections especially Three Centuries of American Art. They have Edward Hopper's Summer in the City, works by Grant Wood, Mary Cassatt, George Inness, Gilbert Stuart, Diego Rivera. Great colorful wall designed by Sol Lewitt. Current exhibit covers a number of galleries--Warhol in Books--comprehensive collection of early Andy Warhol art and designs. All this... More

I was visiting Williams College with my daughter. She had a prearranged agenda that did not include parents.
