Not my thing but fun

A nice afternoon with the wife. Nice way to spend time with someone. Good exhibits. Not an art guy but the museum itself is a good one.

Pretty small museum, well taken care of, lots of employees on hand to answer questions, decent parking. Nice exhibits, but not impressive. Not a place to spend more than an hour.

The qualities of the floral displays are nonpareil! This January weekend is special from January 26 to January 29th. I visited the WAM today and was graciously admitted by Julieane K. Frost , Manager of Marketing to browse. Attendees seemed happy; the creativity of floral displays are as beautiful as a Master's oil on canvas!

One of the best small museums I've visited...and it's local! Great Egyptian and Roman sections; Beautiful early Renaissance paintings! Artifacts are delightful! Cafe available for lighter fare and an impressive gift shop with affordable as well as dear prices. Definitely worth a visit for both young and old!!!

When most people think of art museums, they think of the ones in big cities like Boston. But this is a museum that's worth a trip to central Massachusetts (about 45 minutes drive). I'm a member, and I come here often. For a mid-sized museum, it's quite spacious and it's a peaceful place for study (many art students spend time... More

Was very impressed with my visit to Worcester Art Museum. When I visited in Aug of 2016, it was free for Worcester residents. That certainly made my day. I absolutely love art and everything to do with it, in all forms and mediums. This art museum has everything I could have hoped for, and more. It definitely kept me busy... More

I had the privilege of chaperoning a 6th grade field trip to this museum and will be back on my own time to explore. The staff is super knowledgeable and fun to listen to. They take great pride in their exhibits and museum. The place is a maze of room after room of art and artifacts and is immaculate. So... More
