  • It needs some help. The material was disorganized. We could not find the works we were looking for and several employees did not have the answers. We realize the world of museums is just reopening...

  • This museum has an amazing collection. We enjoyed a demonstration of knights armor that was informative and entertaining. Thank you WAM for a wonderful visit.

  • Was a nice experience. The staff is nice and very helpful and informative. Special appreciation to the hard working associate wearing mostly all black i noticed who was assisting guests on the upper floors, and constantly going up and down floors to help guests.
  • Small crowds. Good exhibits across media and time. Lobby Antioch mosaic is impressive. Waiting for more of the Higgins' armor collection to be displayed. Parking is free.
  • A good diversity of artifacts. I especially enjoyed seeing the oil on canvas paintings and Mayan historical items. Otherwise, parking spaces can be limited or hard to find.
  • First visit. A great and diverse collection. Yes, it was the armour that drew me in. Wish I had more time before hitting the road and heading home to Albany. Next time!
  • Beautiful museum! It is worth the visit. They have a variety of installations dating from early centuries to current 21st century. A lot of beautiful art! Also very friendly workers! And it’s free for Worcester college students!
