Very attractive building with well designed exhibition spaces. Solid permanent collection with surprisingly good special shows during the year.

“Can't wait for completion of the renovation!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Having just moved here, it was nice to know that a museum of art was available! Although only two galleries are currently open, the renovation set to be completed in the summer of 2013 will be a wonderful addition to the Waterville community. Kudos to Colby College!! Currently open is a wonderful exhibit of what the finished renovation project will look like. If you are in the area...definetly stop by!! Admission is FREE
