Interesting small museum, three of the four exhibits were very interesting. Set in a former train station, the building itself is worth seeing, all with a view of the Connecticut River. Great spot for an hour or so, for $6.00 you won't be disappointed

I know it is a small town, but I was expecting more art to view. Half the art consisted of kids' work. I don't need a Picasso, but you have to find some European artist to display!

The former train station has been transformed into a popular small museum. There were several major artists on display as part of a very ambitious exhibition schedule. High marks!

Small, welcoming museum with an open and airy feel. It's inside the former train depot which adds to the charm. Don't expect the Met, just enjoy the space for what it is. We really liked the Roger Sandes exhibit. The Spaceship of Dreams project was...More
