Went with friends early on a Sunday to catch last day of People Watching and general tour. We’re in our 70s but played like kids in the learning labs. Each of us came away with a unique design celebra... more »
My family and I visited and enjoyed this Museum. Great diversity and quality of exhibits for a small museum. My kids loved that there were some "hands on" exhibits. Definitely a great find! more »
Displays of local artists or special exhibits are interesting. A nice resource for the community. I enjoyed every visit there I've taken> more »
Many of the pieces on display were made by relatively local artists. Many of the subjects are of local interest (local buildings, etc) as well. Many art museums I've visited become exhausting after a few hours. Fitchburg Art Museum is nicely sized and kept my interest throughout. The docents with whom we interacted were both friendly and knowledgeable. Tucked back where it is, it can be easily overlooked.
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.
Amazing Egyptian exhibit. Had no idea anything like this existed outside cities loke Boston. Worth a day's adventure.
Nice art. Not a very large museum though.
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!
