  • Worth a few hours to enjoy properly, this is a delightful museum. Parking is a bit difficult at times, so check for close public garages and parking lots before your trip.  more »

  • Their free "2nd Saturdays" are such an amazing gift to the community. I've been bringing my 3-year-old daughter since she was old enough to walk. They do kid-friendly crafts and sometimes have live music. It's been incredible to see my daughter get more and more into the art on display as she gets older. I love that the Wadsworth provides this opportunity to introduce children to art in such a positive way. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I do wish the cafe had kid-friendly options but there are other good lunch options in and around Hartford. My family will be visiting this museum for many years to come.
  • This is a very cool art museum. It may not be huge but it has a deep and diverse collection that is well worth a visit. It is known for its collection of Hudson River School paintings, but there is a lot more to see. The gift shop is a cool place for cool gifts. The museum restaurant is lovely, located in the center of the museum and not relegated to the basement as in some galleries. The food is excellent.
  • I love the art works and beauty of this museum . Their tight security added more meaning to the exhibited art works. I really enjoyed every second spent over there.
  • One of the finest art museums in New England: Dalí, Panini, and Bierstadt, plus art of ancient cultures. A favorite!
  • The Wadsworth is the oldest art museum in the United States. They have exciting new exhibits in their rotation with a more permanent collection of more classical works. Last year's Coney Island exhibit was fantastic. If you live in CT or Western MA would need to take the time to enjoy this wonderful place.
