A gorgeous exhibit that shouldn't be missed. New curator and director are pumping new life into this museum. The Egyptian exhibit in the lower level is really well done and great interactive exhibits. Also,... More

The Fitchburg Art Museum will surprise most visitors. Their collection of art covers a wide range including some great things for kids in their Egyptian room. Well worth the visit. Take the time to get a group together and do the tour with one of their trained docents.

With local as well as international exhibits, this is a wonderful little museum. Also has classes for adults and children, with extra classes scheduled during school vacation times. Have enjoyed going many times in the past many years. Inexpensive membership.

I heard that there was a collection of the Hudson River painters and wanted to see them. A lovely collection it was. The museum is quite large and has... More
