Worth it just to see the bathrooms...but the Art is exceptional too. So many great artists and works; just fabulous. Gift shop is a great one too.

“My whole family loves this place!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We live in Northampton, near Smith College. So on rainy days or slow days with no big plans, this is a wonderful place to go! It is always changing with new exhibits. A treasure for the people of Northampton and visitors alike. My daughter would go with her friends just to go, often, while in high school. Now as an adult, when she visits home, she still find the time to visit the museum! I think that says alot!

“great for kids”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

they take the art seriously, and that is all types of art. We saw an acrobatic performance piece, wandered through the galleries of paintings and drawings, and got to make some art inspired by what we had seen.
