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

Overshadowed by the Wadsworth Atheneaum in Hartford,this art museum is also worthy of recognition for having splendid works of Art from the Late Medieval Period(Spinello Aretino,Nicolas Frances)up to the 20th Century(Theo Rhysellberghe,Maximillian Luce)by European painters..It also has a fine collection of American paintings,especially by Erastus Field.Personal favortes two days ago were;Spinello Aretino's"Madonna and Child in Glory With Crucifixion",Goswyn Vander Weyden's"Triptych...

We spent a couple of hours there and after an hour at a museum that is enough before your mind turns to mush. There are four museums on the grounds and each museum has a different type of exhibit. Some permanent and some on loan. I would be showing my ignorance to try and explain the exhibits that we took... More

This museum is not so big that it's overwhelming. An hour is enough for the average. There is something for everyone to see. A large display of Beatles photos from the media at the time on display. This is one of a group of museums at the location.
