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

This was a destination for me, and a good one at that. It is inside a renovated train station adding to its interest. You walk into a grand, multi level entrance. There is an exhibit there. One that hit home, the "America Through The Windshield" exhibit. The other exhibits are in galleries off the main room. They are all worth... More

We stopped for a short visit recently. Staff were friendly and they have accessible parking and entry for the mobility impaired. Hard to comment on the programming after only one visit, but we appreciated half or more of the exhibits. Not bad for us.

Lovely little museum, both the building and the exhibits. Beautiful view over the river and bridge and they have kept some of the old touches -- the ticket window and offices. Nice, variety of well-thought out shows.

I recently visited the BMAC with friends, during a trip to Vermont. This was my second visit, having attended the Biennial exhibit here last year. I had not given due attention to their hours, mistakenly thinking it was the night of their free admission. It was not. However, it was 20 minutes until closing time, and the attendant at the...

We stumbled upon this museum by chance, and we enjoyed the museum (former train station) immensely. A charming small museum indeed!
