Great museum for a city the size of Worcester. The collections are well-kept and very interesting. Excellent way finding. Very impressive attempt to be both comprehensive and worthwhile at the same time…. a real asset for the city.

So many different exhibits to go view and the prices are very good with free parking. Paid $12 as a student (14 for reg. adult) and easily spent 3.5 hours could have spent more but got cut short on time. Staff in the exhibits are super knowledgeable of the artwork the museum has to offer especially Bob C on the... More

Worcester Art Museum is the place to go and get an overview of world history and art in one day. They have the most elite collections, well curated and explained. Favorites include the Antioch mosaics. Only downside is the frequent modern art displays.

Great art museum...housing wonderful arts. The armor and samurai exhibits add additional interest. Spent 3 hours there ..could have spent another hour. First weekend of every month is free with Bank of America credit card, otherwise rates are $14 each.

They have some really fantastic art on display and really reasonable prices! Wasn't even able to get through the whole museum in a day because there is that much to look at! The current showpiece (May/June 2015-?) the samurai is really amazing and completely worth the price of admission even if you don't see anything else!

I enjoy going to the WAM. I usually bring my grandchildren with me and have a leisurely afternoon with them.

We went because of the Samurai display and because they had purchased the Higgins Armor collection, expecting a 1 hour visit to a provincial museum, and instead spent 3.5 hours in a wonderland of ancient and modern art, culture and knowledge. A surprise on every level, and we now need to go back. Plus ... nearly 5 miles in walking... More
