“A real gem!”

Fuller Craft Museum
Ranked #1 of 10 things to do in Brockton
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 11, 2017

This place is such a gem. More people need to frequent it! Not only is it set in a beautiful environment with a lake replete with classic swans swimming, but there's an outdoors sculpture/sanctuary type landscape as well as the beautiful architecture of the main exhibit building itself. The exhibits I saw recently were outstanding. Old glass repurposed in wonderful and fanciful ways as well as an outstanding modern tapestry exhibit. There's always some community based exhibits as well as the museum seems committed to partnering with the local schools and children to support artistic development. There's a delightful walkout onto a terrace which sits right on the lake. You feel as if you are in a floating Japanese style space. Tho the snack cafe wasn't opened when we visited it seems a perfect place to sit with or without food. There is ample free parking and its so refreshing to be outside the city in a short, traffic free drive to see good art/crafts. Can't say enough good things about this place!

Check out their website to see what exhibit is current on display. They have unique artists who are extremely talented people. The staff is helpful and knowledge. Just do not plan your visit on a Monday as they are closed. This museum is a hidden gem.

This is all about engaging with the arts and, man, does it work. We went on a fairly quiet day in early spring and every single exhibit seduced us, from steam punk to outdoor pieces hidden in the trees. Highly recommended for everyone.

This is a lovely interesting museum and considering- it is the only craft museum in New England, it should receive more visitors. The interior of the museum has high ceilings, natural wood beams as well as floor to ceiling windows. Galleries are featured both inside and outside with sculptures in the museum gardens. There is" on site parking" and the museum is located near the lovely. D.W. Field Park. As well, as this incredible museum and beautiful park, Brockton has some stunning architecture in the downtown area and gorgeous homes from an era gone by. This city has so much to offer and I would think the city fathers or the State of MA. would give it a much needed boost!
