“Worcester Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The summer of 2013 offers FREE admission Wednesday through Sunday. This is a great museum for everyone however very small children could become easily bored and end up running around. Very few paintings have barrier protection so viewing is very personal. My family visited on a Sunday with free admission and had the place to ourselves. There are helpful and friendly security staff in almost every room.
