  • Well run, not too big, helpful staff and a real good tie in for the area. The history, the house next store, and the explanation of the art all work well.

  • There is so much charm to this small but mighty little gem North of Boston. Great day trip activity. You feel the sea and surf through this collection.
  • Worth a visit, interesting info about industry and art of the Glocester area. About 1 1/2 to 2 hours, more if it really sparks interest. Then walk Main St for good shops and restaurants
  • Terrific museum, small but full of terrific art. I love it for viewing an hour or two before eating some place local. Be sure to ask for senior discount.
  • Amazing local artwork and maritime exhibits, The museum is accessible with parking right in front of the door. And a full parking lot across the street.
  • Interesting exhibits. Nice local museum. Worth the trip to Gloucester.
