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.

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.
