“Superb building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Exhibits superbly laid out in this modern museum.
Free entry and well worth a visit.
Almost exclusively modern art so traditionalists may not enjoy!

“Small Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Small, lovely museum right in the center of the Williams campus. Very interesting African American art exhibit when I visited. Some of the original Founding Fathers documents are worth a view as well. Quick visit, but nice collection.

“What a gem of a museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a "must see" when you visit Williamstown. We've been there several times for different exhibits, and they are always exceptional. The layout of the museum is beautiful, spacious, and airy. It's a comfortable size to get through and still have time to check out the shop without feeling overwhelmed. We've been to all the surrounding museums and galleries, and this is still our favorite.

“Great little museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This museum is free and open to the public. The staff was informative and friendly. We saw the Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles i960 - 1980. This was a pretty large collection with mixed art forms. It was well received. Would recommend.

“Gem of a museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

What a surprisingly wonderful museum. Don't let the Clark overshadow this. Though it's small, there was plenty to see; in fact, we wound up coming a second time to make sure we'd covered it all. And free admission to boot!
