Excellent multimedia display on Ancient Egypt burial practices - including mummies. Fascinating gallery about Museum founder Eleanor Norcross (1854-1923), an excellent artist in her own right who studied with American Impressionist William Merritt Chase and lived and worked...

As you drive thru Fitchburg you see the buildings that are a little worn but as soon as you walk thru the doors into the museum you walk into a different world and I will repeat a world class walk, the painting and the rooms are filled with life and joy for each wonderful painting and art work, I must...

The museum is small and has excellent permanent and temporary displays. I normally do not find Egyptian displays hold my interest. I spent about an hour and will go back. It is so well done.

Although the museum is small and fairly compact, the displays are excellent. There are 3 major exhibit areas on two floors--Global Africa, Ancient Egypt, and the Eleanor Norcross exhibit. The quilts, pictures and the photography shown in the galleries are second to none. Further, if you're a AAA member, you pay for one admission and get one free. There is... More

Okay, let's be real. This is not worth a long drive but if you happen to be nearby you should definitely pop in. Loved the Eleanor Norcross exhibit, the quilts, and the African exhibit. Fitchburg looks what you would imagine a town devastated by the 2008 recession - and it hasn't recovered. Since I've never been there before, I don't... More

This museum does a wonderful display of arrangements. In addition they exhibit quilts with floral themes. They also sell plants during the Art in Bloom exhibit. It is very welcoming museum with...
