One of the best small museums I've visited...and it's local! Great Egyptian and Roman sections; Beautiful early Renaissance paintings! Artifacts are delightful! Cafe available for lighter fare and an impressive gift shop with affordable as well as dear prices. Definitely worth a visit for both young and old!!!

When most people think of art museums, they think of the ones in big cities like Boston. But this is a museum that's worth a trip to central Massachusetts (about 45 minutes drive). I'm a member, and I come here often. For a mid-sized museum, it's quite spacious and it's a peaceful place for study (many art students spend time... More

Was very impressed with my visit to Worcester Art Museum. When I visited in Aug of 2016, it was free for Worcester residents. That certainly made my day. I absolutely love art and everything to do with it, in all forms and mediums. This art museum has everything I could have hoped for, and more. It definitely kept me busy... More

I had the privilege of chaperoning a 6th grade field trip to this museum and will be back on my own time to explore. The staff is super knowledgeable and fun to listen to. They take great pride in their exhibits and museum. The place is a maze of room after room of art and artifacts and is immaculate. So... More

The Worcester art museum has a decent size collection comparable in quality to larger city museums,but, without the crowds. There are some major pieces here, an excellent collection of early american furniture, and, in the entrance, an unbelievable mosaic from ancient Antioch.

The WAM collection covers American, European, Pre-Columbian, Ancient, Islamic, Chinese, Indian and other histories. Noted pieces by the MASTERS can be found. Special Events and select programs are common. Community offerings meet the needs of families and school-aged groups. One visit will lead you to "regular returns". WAM is a CITY treasure.

I ended up going to the museum on a whim and it was amazing. It has a lot of great collections and is organized in a very effective way. I worked my way from the top down and was able to see a lot that way. This is one of the better museums I have seen in quite a while.
