The Hood Museum has a great collection that's well presented. You can consider it a great small museum, or a great large museum for a college. The collection is highly varied, with only about 1% on view at any one time. I saw some excellent American and European painting, but also outstanding African weapons, Inuit carving, and ancient middle eastern... More

The Hood Museum was such a delight. I got to see art from the 60's. The Civil Rights exhibit was very interesting. There are usually sculptures in the back area outside that are fun to check out. This museum is close to shopping and great places to eat. The theater is right there also. You can combine a lot of... More

Several small exhibits, with very interesting pieces. Upstairs was closed in preparation of a large exhibit coming soon. The Americana exhibit had very interesting and enjoyable paintings and photography. There was an exhibit featuring weapons, which was wonderful to see them all next to one another, and be able to get close up to them. There was an antiquities exhibit... More

This museum is right on the campus and is free. It has 2 levels of many kinds of art. Many exhibits really work to educate the viewer on how to look at and appreciate art. So it is great for kids too.

Our family likes to visits college and university museums because they work well for children being teaching museums. Also the scale is manageable and they're affordable. The Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth is one of the best we've ever visited. The man at the front desk was gracious and welcoming. One of the first things we noticed was how... More

This museum has a nice mix of classic and contemporary art. It's on the small side, but the variety of works keeps things interesting. The woman at reception was very welcoming. The galleries were very peaceful and quiet. A must see if visiting Hanover. And admission is free! We had trouble finding it at first and drove by twice before... More

I would have to say that the temporary Picasso exhibit "Vollard Suite" was a disturbing eye opener into the mind of Picasso.. The collections are especially rich in American art and are my favorite place to spend time. There is no cost to visit and is generally not very crowded.

I was greeted at the entrance- I loved the exhibits up stairs and the permanent collection downstairs. There were even people available for questions and conversation. My boyfriend and I loved it!
