I’m not a big fan of Modern Art but this was a great stop. The building itself Is quite impressive. Saw some cool installations but wayfinding is difficult. Fortunately staff were around. If you are in North Adams you should visit.

We spent two full days at MASS MoCA and could easily go back for a third. The Anselm Keifer was magnificent. The whole site is great to explore.

If you love modern art this is your place. They have a lot of exhibitions and interactive artwork. The people who work there is very friendly and commited.

We were there for a bluegrass festival, called "Freshgrass." Enjoyed the concert, but also toured the museum a little. Very interesting, very offbeat exhibits. Parking plentiful. Nice venue for events. The stuff in the museum is not my cup of tea, but it is interesting...More

In a vast, rambling set of industrial buildings, the Mass MoCa has become one of the most exciting places in the US to experience contemporary art. The buildings are large enough -- and the institution visionary enough --to accommodate installations at an immense scale, but...More
