Last minute plan to head out so didn't do my usual research. I like Contemporary art....but often don't understand all it is trying to convey.. so I timed my visit for the daily tour at 2p. Off our merry band followed as our guide tour...More
Loved this building with its unique architecture and wonderful space . The Sol Lewitt exhibit is quite fascinating . Short video was well done explaining his work. Many of the other exhibits were interactive and very well done! Could spend hours here! If you call...More

We have stayed at the Porches in North Adams and it was great. Another time we stayed at the Holiday Inn in North Adams because the Porches was booked. It was a great location (like Porches), less expensive, but not as special. I would recommend both!
