  • It was a spur of the moment visit. We had gone to Hungry Ghost Bread, down the hill, and spotted the museum. I thought it was free since most of the college museums around here are. Not... $5 for adul...  more »

  • We always enjoy visiting art museums on college campuses and had a nice experience at this museum. It is a nice size and the exhibit was very nice. Walking the campus is also very special.  more »

  • Major College Art museum in a modern building with good light and flowing spaces over multiple floors. Their permanent collection offers an overview of Western art from ancient times onward and is supplemented by an active program of special exhibitions. While not at the level of the museums at say Yale or Princeton, Smith nonetheless is worth a stop. They have a small gift shop, but no (longer a) cafe.
  • I had a delightful visit here a few the years ago. Not only was the staff friendly and helpful , When they found out we were visiting from out of state they stayed open late so we could finish viewing a gallery !
  • Rude staff. Should look into employing college students instead. Will awkwardly follow you around and make viewing art a very unpleasant experience. Amhest College's Mead Museum and UMass' Contemporary art museum are much much better.
  • Way exceeded my expectations for a small liberal arts college. Well worth an afternoon visit..only open till 4pm on Sundays , best $5 museum spend in ages
  • I like the relatively small space (compared to the Met or MOMA). Gives you the chance to see the exhibit in 1-2 hours.. Easy parking, friendly staff.
