We like to visit here every so often. The art is always changing and it is fun to see what is new this season. The gift shop is small but a good variety of items.

Enjoyed a few hours at this museum, particularly enjoyed the exhibit on historic dance costumes. There is also a wonderful collection of the works of Maurice Prendergast and a fascinating exhibit on the connection between Williams College alumni and Hawaii.

A little too modern for my taste. Understandably this museum is aimed at art and art history students. The exhibitions seem to change quite regularly, so it is worth checking what will be on display to see whether this is of interest to you.

Loved seeing the costumes and photos and videos. Only a few rooms so doesn't take much time out of your day and admission is free.

This is a small museum with some interesting works of art. It didn't rise to the level of Must See, but it's a nice stop over if you have the time.

The dance exhibition from Jacob's Pillow was inventively mounted, brilliant to look at and printed matter a joy to read. Kudos to the curator/director. Nice bookstore. And it's FREE!!!!

The Williams College Museum of Art is always challenging and always delightful. It also happens to be free; but we know nothing is ever "free" so drop them a coin though they don't insist
