We didn't expect this museum to be as large and comprehensive as it is. We were pleased with the variety of art and how they told their story.

Excellent Watercolor USA exhibition, which I enjoyed as much as some top watercolor exhibitions in New York and California, and much more accessible and affordable. Well worth the trip to Springfield to see.

This museum is a hidden gem. We are fortunate to have this experience available for all. A wide variety of art, location for meetings such as the Woodturners monthly meeting and classes.
