I enjoyed the variety of paintings and other pieces on display. I arrived about 50 minutes before closing time on Wednesday, October 11th, but enjoyed browsing quickly through the exhibits in the three-story museum. A hands-on room for children adds a nice touch, as does...More

The collections - traveling and permanent - are unique and tasteful. I am not a connoisseur, but even I found it worth the visit. Thank you, Amica Insurance for sponsoring free admission.

My family enjoy visiting the museum a few times a year. The exhibits usually change every few months and its just overall a refreshing experience. This is no charge but they really appreciate any donations.
