Not to be missed. I return again and again. Simply extraordinary installations. Incredible facility in an old rambly factory in a town that has struggled since the closing of mills. Provocative. Creative. Inspiring. Confusing. Such a great experience.

Massive art museum built in an old factory facility. Large installations, virtual reality exhibit, kids exhibits. Largest modern art museum in the area. Reciprocity admission with NYC's Whitney Museum.

This museum is a hidden gem. Such an incredible collection of art, and so big you need multiple days to visit. Note that your ticket lasts two days so plan for a few days to visit, and get there early and plan to stay late....More

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
