Mechanics Hall should be on your list to visit. Considered one of the most perfect concert halls acoustically as well as it's historical significance, the variety of paid and free concerts make it a must stop for visitors whatever the season.

Love seeing plays at Mechanics Hall! Students have enjoyed Charlotte's Web and Aesop's Fables here. Pretty venue and impressive architecture ~ Worcester's gem. A great wedding venue as well. Love the history and stately detail of this magestic beauty.
