A definite must if in the area. The collection is varied but impressive regardless of your interests.

“One of the best medium size museums in the country”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

The Worcester Art Museum (WAM) has been voted multiple times one of the best medium size museums in the country and you'll see why very quickly. Not only does the museum have 35,000 permanent works of art but the inside of the interior of the museum is also a work of art that has been featured in movies including The Maiden Heist. Always new exhibits are coming in and WAM has an excellent reference library. If you're in the Worcester area definitely stop in and enjoy it. WAM often has free access days sponsored by local companies so you may want to call to see if and when they are offered.

They are also free before noon on Saturdays but also well worth the price of admission
