Owner description: The Addison Gallery is home to a world-class collection of American Art, along with a vital and adventurous exhibitions program. The museum is committed to serving the public through free admission and an education outreach program that reaches diverse audiences. The Addison’s size gives visitors an opportunity to experience its wide-ranging exhibitions in a more intimate setting than typical of larger museums. The Addison is just 30 minutes from Boston.

Quick visit to museum. Son an artist and he was quite pleased with it. Two Edward Hopper paintings which is what it is known for. Great civil war display.

One would never know that this gallery is in a prep school. It is a must see for anyone visiting Andover.

Always a great place to visit. Collection is very interesting and their special exhibits are always educational and worth seeing. And it is free (although they ask for a donation)

The recent renovation is stunning. Particularily the roof top succulant garden, studded with Chiully orbs... The extensive collection of American Art spanning over two centuries is beyond impressive. Don't let the constipated Andover location disuade you...this is a great space to spend a few hours, while on campus at America's premier prep school -- Phillips Academy. The staff, and just about every individual you'll encounter at PA, could not be more engaging. A MUST SEE !
