  • Expensive at 15.00 per person. Small museum and the staff was very rude. I would suggest something different.  more »

  • Since about 2010, this museum has progressed famously.I gave five stars for their exhibitions like Michelanglo's architectural drawings, the mysterious Carravaggio, WPA paintings, Matilda of Canossa and the Origins of the Renaissance, and soon to come (Feb 21st) Leonardo's drawings for the exhibition on Virtue and Beauty. This little museum is a real find for those either visiting colonial Williamsburg ( you'll get a break from the Revolution) or who live closer by and want an interesting destination for a few hours. Since the venue is small, it won't take but one and half hours or so (unless you are like me and could stare all day at one piece of art), but the Muscarelle provides a wonderful respite from daily life with thought-provoking pieces carefully curated by historians like John Spike and his wife Michele Spike ( Matilda of Canossa) . Also upstairs, they have some fantastic Japanese prints drawn from life in the Kabuki theater . I am so happy to be able to visit this museum at a whim and find stimulating material to see and ponder .
  • Nice paintings but was very disappointed to have to drive here for a project, pay, then have one room of paintings..
