In the heart of downtown Brattleboro the museum has a lot of interesting exhibits and fun events such as the recent domino toppling event in which thousands of dominos were creatively set up throughout the museum and then toppled to the delight of the many children and families who were there. It is open during the first Friday evening each... More

A smallish place worthy of a visit. Their faces exhibition is excellent especially if you bring small children who like to draw. Parking nearby.

We read about this Museum online, and decided to take a chance in our #ThisIsNewEngland travels with a 2.5 hour drive from out home in CT, and it was worth the trip. First off, Brattleboro is a New England destination all by itself, and find the Museum with or without GPS is a piece of cake, as it placed in... More

A revolving series of exhibits by local artists and photographers, in a beautifully-lit, ample space that is free and open to the public. As are its public bathrooms, which are clean, large and to the back after a long walk up Brattleboro's main street!

The BMAC, as it is called locally, is an endowed, professionally curated fine arts museum. If you are very particular about what art you view, you won't be disappointed here. The BMAC shows only the finest visual art, and the curation and exhibit design is the best in the inner New England region.

It is more a rotating exhibition, than a museum, so check the website what is presented at a particular time your are planning to come. This time it was about a sculpture made of many small wooden pieces and photography including those of Senator Leahy, showing people and leaders of the world. Friendly staff.

This is such a beautiful. Quaint museum which was once the old Union train station. All staff are super friendly and helpful. A must see whenever you are in Brattleboro.

Despite the title, this is neither an art center nor a museum. It seemed to be a wanna-be art museum but was hugely disappointing. For all the history around this part of the world it is sad that there are not any decent museums - I expected more from something that advertises itself as such. Sorry to report that it... More

November sees the start of a brand new Arts & photography exhibition at BMAC. In my view this is perhaps one of the best exhibitions in the year or so that I have frequented the museum.Well worth a visit if you are visiting Brattleboro or South Vermont.

The center has a nice mix of events and updates their exhibits regularly. It's a former train station which makes for an interesting space. There are also various lectures and presentations throughout the year which supplement the Center. Definitely worth repeat visits to see the changing exhibits. Parking can be more difficult since there's really nothing right at the Center.... More
