  • Super great, small, yet focused museum. Interesting exhibitions. And right on the Mystic River... with a great patio. Nice to spend a few hours here. Close to everything.

  • This is such a pretty art gallery that is free to the public, unless you park your car in the parking area, then you have to pay a small fee. It doesn't really have a feel of a "museum" since a lot of the pieces are for sale. There are however several pieces that are permanent (NFS) and some that are on loan. A staff member who was very friendly and helpful said that the gallery changes the exhibit every six months. My favorite piece was the polar bear sculpture and that unfortunately is one of the permanent pieces in the gallery. I would come here again in the future to see what other kind of art is put on display.
  • It was a cool place to stay cool for free, more like a gallery than a museum, since you could purchase artwork. I would have liked to buy a couple of pieces.
  • Fantastic staff!!! So much fun catering with Ivys simply homemade!! Being a part of these wonderful women and food you can't go wrong thank you to MmoA.
  • Lovely little art gallery. Recommend going to an opening where they have the back patio open. Great location on the water which can be fully utilized. Celebrate local artists and always changing up the visiting shows. Easy walk from downtown mystic when looking for an activity to add to a day walking around downtown in the summer.
  • The Soderberg exhibit was very interesting and many of the members'/elected artists' works were excellent. The validated parking helped us make a stress-less day of it, too!
