You wouldn't think this place would be such a wonderful museum. My kids and I enjoyed our visit. We also enjoyed very much the restaurant.

“A Very Nice Place to Visit”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Went there for the first time a few Sundays ago. We were the only people there, as there was an outside event taking place that weekend, but I also think that many people just don't know that the places exists!

The staff was INCREDIBLY friendly, telling us not to miss things, explaining the history of the museum, etc. The exhibit they had on Hudson River Paintings was really nice.

For those that haven't been and if you live in the area, you should visit....

“a must see....”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I was totally surprised at this amazing museum. I wasn't holding out much hope when my friend told me we would be spending a rainy afternoon at a museum in Fitchburg. Fitchburg? Really? Well back in its hey day, Fitchburg had a benefactress who was well connected and an artist herself. Her art is proudly displayed throughout the museum as are many other fine examples of mostly American painters. The 'security guards' were kind, helpful and held an amazing amount of knowledge of what was on display. This is well worth the hour+ trip from the Boston area.

“pleasantly surprising small museum”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We enjoyed our recent visit to this small art museum. The original building houses a tidy collection of American and European painting along with decorative art. The newer annex includes temporary exhibit space plus Egyptian and other ancient art. The temporary exhibit was focused on New England artists; see it while you can. The Egyptian section had lots of hands on exhibits for the kids, including making a pyramid, writing with hyroglyphics, and conducting a job interview in ancient Egypt.

The staff was quite helpful directing us around the museum. It was worth the visit.
