Did not think this would be as great as it was. There are many countries and time periods in the collection.....enjoyed most the French impressionists, they have a Renoir, Degas, and Monet in this room, but also a lot of the American painters, such as the Hudson River School, etc. They even have a Calder mobile, and some very modern...

This museum may be small but the exhibits are first rate. The art must have been selected by a professional curator rather than just be donations from locals. Be sure to double-check the map on where to turn for the museum. It is slightly tucked away. There is a large parking lot.

The Fine Arts Museum is only 1 part of the Quadrangle. The Fine Arts has a good selection of all genre of art including an occasional traveling exhibit for an additional admission. The current exhibit of American Modern Art is not worth the extra admission price. Incidentally, the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden is just to the outside of this building.

The museum is currently running an art forgery exhibit that we enjoyed very much. It is small, but the art is enjoyable. It is part of a group, and admission is for all museums in the Quadrangle. They do a AAA discount as well as student and seniors too.

If you take the stairs down into the basement of the Science Museum at the Quadrangle, you'll find a hidden treasure. There is a small but very nice live animal exhibit and aquarium there that many people miss seeing. Also, bring your camera. Photography is welcome and there are many wonderful exhibits you'll want your friends and family to see.

It's free, it's cozy, it's welcoming, it's so clean for a public park, it's inspirational and it's surrounded by places to sit and museums. I'd go back to Springfield JUST for this!

This was very nicely done. Not really all that big but a very eclectic collection of lots of stuff to look at.

For a small city this museum complex has everything, including a D.Seuss National Memorial Sculpture garden.

We were there when the leather jacket ehibit was there. So much fun to see the jackets and walk around the corner to see a Monet. I must admit my husband and I spent more time with the leathers than the masters.

I'm not too found of paintings but this museum was included in the price of all, so my husband and I did spend some time wandering around in here. My favorite part was the collection of art that was made out of "trash." Very cool and interesting to see familiar things such as tide boxes and gum wrappers made into... More
