Whether or not you're into modern art, exploring MoCA is well worth your time. Before entering you will find yourself looking at trees growing upside down and from there it only gets better. I've been through several times and I have to say I have not understood everything each artist was attempting to express through their exhibit but the shear... More

We already love Mass MoCA. What was different this time was that we were coming with a large group celebrating a 60th birthday and guided highlight tours were recommended as an excellent way for a group to be introduced to the museum. That whole experience was great. The museum bent over backwards in working with us to set it up... More

Stunning complex of repurposed industrial building with enormous spaces that lend themselves to unique displays of breath taking art exhibitions. Combined with the Clark Art Institute and Williams College Museum of Art it can be a fun, I'll day of culture in the berkshires.

This is one of my favorite museums. The beautiful, renovated, brick mill buildings are perfect for showing massive installations. Just saw the Nick Cave show, it was inspiring.

Mass MOCA lived up to expectations during my first visit this fall. Wonderful exhibits from Nick Cave, Alex da Corte & Sol Lewitt. The space itself is an collection of great old mill buildings. They are in the process of expanding to house even more well curated shows. It's totally worth the drive! Stay over and explore more of what... More

Modern art meets modern architecture. We saw some mind boggling art here, but also some art that was mindless. Its a must visit if in the Berkshires, but may not be everyone's cup of tea.

My son and I had tried to sync up our schedules so that we could see the Canada show when it was at MASS MOCA, but it was not meant to be. This summer, before he left to go to grad school, we did a road trip that took us through North Adams. We spent a day at MASS MOCA... More

An absolutely gorgeous space with incredible works. I've visited several times and am always blown away. This time we brought our grade school age children. It's a fantastic museum for children, with wide open spaces, challenging and interesting works and artworks that you can walk through and be immersed in. The kids space area has tables for art and crafting... More

Mass MOCA is a huge converted mill that displays art that will amaze you. Because of its gigantic size, impressive installations can be seen here. You're guarenteed to see something you love and something that merely leaves you puzzled. It's definitely worth the trip. There's a nice cafe downstairs with reasonably priced, tasty lunches.

Years ago I went to Mass MoCA, I wasn't impressed that much, BUT, after going there recently I was much more impressed. Don't get me wrong, there are pieces of art that either made us go "huh why?', "??", "wow", "damn that's an interesting piece", and "Yes, awesome". There were other pieces that you just had to look over and... More
