The Hood Museum of Art is located on the campus of Dartmouth College. We saw several undergraduate groups in different locations in the museum. A good mix of art styles and changing exhibits. Do not miss the Assyrian carvings, absolutely spectacular!!

A little gem right in ther heart of Dartmouth College, this museum has a small, but interesting collection. And on top of it, it is welcoming and free of charge. Worth a visit.

You would say a small museum but it is actually big, huge for a such small but prestigious Ivy League. From ancient art, over Eskimo's people art to contemporary art pieces. If at Dartmouth must visit. :)

Always loved visiting the Hood Museum of Art when we lived in VT. Last visit since our retirement to Savannah was just as memorable. Great eclectic collections and exciting rotating art and installations. A fine museum!

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
