Worth a day trip to see. I think contemporary art can be hit or miss, but there where some cool exhibits. The space is huge so installation works are really uninhibited. The current exhibits didn't really speak to me, but there were some great installations...More

We've been to MASS MoCA several times over the last 25 years - and have always found some interesting installations that have made the 2 hour drive worthwhile. This is our first visit since they've doubled their size (a year ago.) While the space itself...More

We made a day trip to North Adams for our first visit to this repurposed mill space. Smart architectural arrangements with only slightly confusing movement through the galleries. There were good temporary shows as well as a smart permanent installation. Would we return? Yes. Would...More

While not really a contemporary art fan I am open to new experiences and wanted to check this out for a while. The space is incredible - huge is an understatement. The exhibits were interesting - enough that I would return. The staff were friendly...More

We spent three hours here and didn't get tired at all! So much to look at. Consisting of many converted mills, the setting itself is overwhelming. The Hoosic River flows swiftly by, and the sight of the brick walls, the large windows looking out on...More

A good day out in a really interesting old factory building. I may not have appreciated all of the art in the way that it was intended, but it was still fun to look around. As a bonus, the was a folk group playing informally...More

Never knew this place existed until a local friend of mine took us there. What a treat! We tried to cram everything in an hour. I love old factories repurposed into art museums. It reminded me of Tasmania's MONA, but on a much larger scale....More

You won’t like everything but you will not be bored. Every gigantic room contains something you never would have predicted. It’s so big you can come back the next day on the same ticket. Make sure you reserve the Laurie Anderson and James Turrell exhibits...More

It's hard to describe, because unlike most museums which have far more art than they can display, Mass MoCA has virtually unlimited space. Some of the installations require you to spend a good bit of time, but the time will be well spent. Whether you...More
