  • Is was a wonderful experience seeing the hard work of various Artists especially the one by Megan Alyssa Occil caption in the picture.
  • Something for everyone to see, there is just so much inspiring beautiful art work to see, a great way to spend time together with your family and friends.
  • Fitchburg Art Museum is an amazing cultural experience in the heart of Fitchburg Mass. Exhibits change frequently --- so it's never quite the same experience twice! Very unique and thought provoking art in varying medium. Always an event, opening, artist talk or Farmer's Market on Free First Thursdays to attend. Highly recommend. Kids welcome and many activities for them also--- mine loves the Egypt room!
  • Wonderful exhibits and presentations of quality art from past and present. Great job FAM!
  • Went with friends. Very nice collection and we'll worth the time. I think 1st Thursday is no charge after 3
