  • Exquisitely curated mini collections from ancient to post modern, East and West, fine arts and decorative. A great teaching opportunity for those needing an AH 101-102 one day course. Overall a real gem. The portraiture collection is magnificent.
  • Somebody told me this medium is small, that I'd only need 30 minutes. Trust me, this place is big and can easily fill up your afternoon so give yourself plenty of time. The displays are laid out to give you a very personal experience and their are plenty of docents to guide you. This would be a great museum regardless of where it is, so don't let it being on Worcester stop you from visiting.
  • Great museum with some good artifacts. Really liked the chapter house...very different and an amazing structure. Loved the the museum had places to draw and was very welcoming. Wish the gift shop had WAM souvenirs.
  • Many interesting finds in here. It's with spending a bit of time looking around to see what you can. And if you're a student it's free so there's no excuse to not visit!
  • A wonderful collection. A real treat to take it all in! Lovely cafĂ© serves lunch Wednesday - Saturday, 11:30 - 2. Average plate price is $14 for sandwiches. Though a bit pricey, everything is fresh and delicious. They offer a selection of kids meals for $6.
