Thanks Tripadvisor for listing this fabulous Museum, I have lived in the area all my life and did not know this treasure was so close. We made a field trip out of the Museum with children from K- 12 and were delighted with the whole experience. We will definitely return in the spring to see the outdoor sculpture and make... More

Vassar's art center will be a find for many art-lovers: an excellent, small, free museum of surprising breadth and quality. Some of the top names of the 20th century are here (Picasso, de Kooning, Calder, Bacon, O'Keeffe, Matisse, Chagall), but so are asian antiquities, early photography, and a whole section devoted to the Hudson River school. Give yourself extra time... More

We had no idea that works of Van Gogh and artists of similar merit were on display, (at no cost!) so locally. Small but impressive, well-loved and well-maintained, this art center is well worth a visit. Preceded or followed by a walk around the gorgeous Vassar College campus, and with a couple of excellent cafes right next door on Collegeview... More

The art center itself is of modern architecture and looks great juxtaposed to Vassar's beautiful traditional campus. So many interesting works of art, from hundreds of years ago to the present, something for everyone, an eclectic collection. We had a great afternoon taking our time strolling through the art center.

When traveling I always like to walk college campuses. Vassar is beautiful, and their art museum is stellar. Significant breadth of content, helpful docents, photos allowed, and a website of downloadable images. A great way to spend a few hours!

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie NY is a lot more than a teaching museum. Housed in a 36,000 sq ft circa 1993 César Pelli building, the Art Center exhibits a rotating selection of over 19,000 works of art. The "Project Gallery" displays works of art requested by faculty members for their classes. A dozen... More

We visited here one Friday afternoon earlier this month. Definitely worth a little time to check out the variety of art on display.

An impressive gallery in sleepy Poughkeepsie. The gallery is free to the public and you can easily spend an afternoon viewing the permanent exhibits in addition to the visiting exhibits. I've never experienced a crowd which makes the experience that much better.
