Amazing variety of ancient, classic and modern art. Very high quality. And in the heart of Northampton so plenty of other sites, shops and good places to eat.

The permanent collection has some interesting pieces, including a striking Diego Rivera self Portrait and of course lots of 20th century masters. When we visited there was an interesting temporary exhibit of artifacts from the Roman vacation villas near Pompeii.

The 19th and early 20th century collection is peerless, in part because the American painters are featured along with the French impressionists and others of the era. If you are in the area and care about art, GO! But remember to bring quarters for the...More
