Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art
#4 of 21 things to do in Amherst
There are 3 galleries, which seem to mostly interest grown-ups, an art studio for kids and grown-ups alike, a library with books and some toys, a fantastic book shop, and a theatre.
In addition to the galleries, the museum includes a library, an auditorium, a bookshop with autographed copies of Carle’s work and an art studio where children can learn the art of illustration.

Bring a raft and a beach towel and hang out with all the college kids :) It's the best "beach" in the area!
The people are very friendly and this is a great place to bring your family on a hot summer day to cool off in a natural pond.
