The Fitchburg Art Museum is one of the most treasured cultural institutions in Central New England and serves the Cities of Fitchburg and Leominster and surrounding communities in North Central Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

FAM was founded in 1925, and its four-building complex, with over 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, features exhibitions from its art historical collections as well as special loan exhibitions focused on regional contemporary art. Collection strengths include 19th Century American Art, American photography, African Art, Greek and Roman Art and Egyptian Art. The Egyptian collection is presented in an interactive gallery designed for families and school groups.

FAM plays a vital role in the cultural life of the region. Area schools, community groups and artist organizations are featured in FAM’s Community Gallery, and the museum maintains active educational partnerships with public and private schools and Fitchburg State University. FAM also participates in efforts to stimulate the local creative economy, particularly by partnering in community-based festivals and public art projects.

    I would have given them a higher rating but the fact of feeling like i being followed had me a bit on edge. Museum was small but nice. We went during a time in which they were showing work from local artist in which i had the honor to meet one of them. Mr. Renfield was awesome.

    Nice museum with local charm! It was admittedly small, but the exhibits were tasteful and well organized. Two of the exhibits were more geared toward children than I was expecting, but there was plenty for adults to enjoy as well!

    The current exhibit at the Fitchburg Museum of Art is over the top. Not he old FAM that I remember. More than one visit for me (89yrs old) to take it all in. The Art in Bloom show is the most exciting ever. Many thanks to all the hard work and talent bringing a lovely welcome to Spring.
