  • I have been to this Museum for the wedding celebration of friends. Warm, solemn and elegant for the celebration of a marriage. The magnificent Hall of the Museum hosted the dinner in a truly unique and stylish. Also of interest is the guided tour.

  • A much better museum than I expected it to be! We came in after 3 so it was free entry. They have many big name artist's such as Dali and Monet, but there were far fewer people than somewhere like MOMA or the Met. It was a really great experience.
  • One of the best art museums in the country. Street parking is free on weekends although a little challenging in Hartford, admittance is free for people under 18 and only $5 for college students with an ID. This museum is one of the best places you can see in this city if you're interested in world famous artists like Van Gogh, Monet, Dali, Pollock, and don't have a crazy travel budget.
  • It's the longest continuously running Art Museum in America! Great breadth of art and the a good size so that you don't get overwhelmed by any particular art style. Also, if you have the right type of membership with the Walker Art Center, you'll have reciprocity to this museum too!
  • This is a hidden gem in Connecticut! It's the oldest art museum in New England and houses work from Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Samuel Colt, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol to name a few! From ancient art created before the birth of Jesus Christ to modern abstract sculptures, you'll find it all!
  • Great museum! Love the space and the setup. They have some really amazing pieces here as well. The Vlamnick piece was especially satisfying. On top of that, the staff was very knowledgeable and incredibly warm and friendly. Will return!
