Had group tour of the college's art museum, permanent collection plus lovely temporary exhibits. Wide-ranging collection. Outdoor sculptures including Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE. Enjoyed sitting outside with beautiful vistas.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I visited the campus to get a feel for the college itself, even if only very casually--not to partake in its museum or other on-campus attractions. We were lucky to be visiting during the summer, when some of the foreign language immersion programs were being offered, and, sure enough, encountered not only groups of... More

The main attraction for the culture-seeking traveller on the Middlebury campus is their art museum, housed in their fine and performing arts building on the southern border of the campus. The building itself is an interesting bit of postmodern architecture, and the interior is nicely festooned with worthy student work. The museum itself is smallish; it has a collection ranging...

Middlebury College is a beautiful college with an amazing campus and academics that are extremely well regarded. Middlebury has been ranked the #4 Liberal Arts College in the country for many years now. The town of Middlebury has a quaint downtown and numerous wonderful restaurants. This is a great area to visit!

It was a rainy Saturday so our family went down to middle bury college to see its art museum. I think we were all surprised at how small it was (the Colby art museum in Maine in contrast is huge and high quality overall). This one had a smattering of pieces from different periods. One current exhibit of photos of... More

Large beautiful historic buildings and lovely grounds. Much marble work everywhere. Large estate homes which have either be purchased or bequeathed to the college are well maintained. The chapel at the top of the hill is well worth the climb!

You don't have to know anybody, you don't have to have a family member involved here, if in Middlebury just simply cruise this beautiful campus. Beautiful buildings and large green grass lawn area's. It's part of Middlebury but still has a country feel, just a great setting!

Middlebury's ranking and reputation speak for themselves. It is a fabulous school. I have seen many campus locations and very few can compete with the local environment (small town, walking trails around town, rolling hills with buildings well placed) and with the larger environment with views of the Green Mountains and Adirondacks. It doesn't get better.
