We spent a few hours here on a hot afternoon during our vacation. The museum was very clean and well laid out. It had many nice pieces of art. Our daughter is an aspiring artist so this made for a perfect stop for us.

The modest size of this museum makes it a perfect spot to tour on a rainy afternoon or even a lunch hour. Admission is free, though donations are accepted and appreciated. Elderly folks and families will youngsters will appreciate the fact that you can see this museum without walking 3 city blocks. Parking is free and convenient, and the collection... More

I have visited this art museum for over 40 years. As a person that visits art museums on a routine basis, I can say this is one of my favorites in the entire region. See their regional competition Watercolor USA every summer. Outstanding!

Went for the first time and we were surprised at the extent of the offerings. Have at least something from most of my favorities from the impressionist and expressionist eras. Many of the painting are from local artists as well and this goes back to the civil war. Nicely designed building and nearby nice park as well.

Springfield is beginning to bud into a vibrant art community, and the Springfield Art Museum is a great supplement. Not only is the space itself lovely, but the art is phenomenal. It's a great venue for a host of events, as well. I've been many times, and it's always a treat.

The Springfield Art Museum is a place of quiet and calm where you can enjoy the interpretation of artist's visions on canvas. Get away from the fast pace of life and just enjoy the beauty of the pictures.

I like to visit the art museum in each city my husband and I visit. The facility was clean and well kept, although there was not much art for the size of the building. Each large gallery had 10-12 pieces, sometimes less. The largest room in the building was for children's elementary school work. I love the idea of showcasing... More

This free attraction is definitely worth a stop for any traveler that enjoys taking in cultural sights. There is a great deal of variety here: natural exhibits, artwork from the Renaissance onward, and art and antiquities from Asia and Europe. Even some of the modern art is actually worth seeing. There is definitely a good attribution of local and traveling... More
