  • Great museum! Wonderful permanent exhibits and constantly installing new installations. One of the best contemporary art museum's I've been too. Enjoy it every time!
  • I recommend Mass MoCA to anyone who enjoys art, unique perspectives, and learning experiences for people of all ages. The exhibits are amazing and some are interactive, a great environment for the family. The cafe in the entrance is delicious and often has great live performances!
  • The exhibits are mostly black liberation, social justice, gun oriented, and highly liberal. It was nauseating. I liked it better last year when the exhibits were art, not political science or racist. Poor job MoCA.
  • Went there on their free day and it was wonderful. Tons of things to see you really could spend an entire day there. Would pay to go again.
  • One of my favorite destinations. Fantastic exhibits. Such a gem.
