Love the exhibits at the WAM! For a small museum, there are so many beautiful works of art! I've attended many events at the WAM since high school. They are wonderful! Also, I took many great courses! The cafe has delicious food. Great place to connect with art, people, creativity, and relaxation! Visited many times over the years!

The WAM is a great place to escape to and feel cultured and educated. Whether you stay for an hour or the whole day, you're sure to be wowed by the many exhibits. Children and families will enjoy countless sculptures, paintings, lithographs and artifacts. Stroller friendly too. Cafe on premises.

I enjoy browsing around on a rainy day. It's a small museum and it's the cure for Worcester culture without having to drive to Boston.

The Worcester Art Museum has a pretty good permanent collection, but the inventive curators ensure that it is well worth a visit. The current Meow show, featuring cat art and "cats in residence", is thoroughly enjoyable.

My 15 year old attended a drawing class, he enjoyed it. Thought the instruction was good. Reasonably priced as well.

This is a family friendly museum that will also satisfy the highest expectations of art aficionados. The current "Meow" exhibit is great fun and the permanent collection covers a broad range of periods. The American painting gallery is particularly enjoyed by fans of Homer, Sargent, and their contemporaries.

This is a great museum near downtown Worcester with plenty of parking across the street from the museum. I grew up in Worcester and went to the museum many times to see the wonderful pieces of art, artifacts and special exhibits that they bring in frequently. They have a great little shop with wonderful gifts for any age and books... More

The Roman mosaics were very impressive. The museum had a special cat exhibit that attracted us, but it was not all we had hoped for. Many of the other exhibit halls seem overcrowded or had odd color choices on the walls, and there are few benches to sit on an take in the works.
