We happened to be here on a day when admission was free, which was a nice surprise. We would have happily paid as the museum has plenty to offer. Many impressive and large exhibits that you actually walk through to experience. There was one large gymnasium-sized room with mobiles that was simply stunning. Very easy to spend a couple of...

We had fun visiting the Kids Space abd utilizing the art bar. There was a lot of really cool art here I was impressed. My only complaint is parking - after driving around the lot 3 times I gave up abd found some metered parking across the street (which was cheap 25 cents got us 2.5 hours) but I was... More

My wife and I visited this attraction today. We were given a Christmas present for admission to this and another arts venue. Our experience at Mass MoCa was delightful. All of the staff we encountered was helpful to us in every way possible. A great variety of exhibits. Most interesting and wonderful is Nick Cave. We plan to return again.

We live only 30 minutes away and don't know why we waited so long to go! The old buildings that comprise MASS MoCA are just great and the exhibits were interesting and thought provoking. I understand some of them rotate so we will definitely go back in the warmer months so we can do additional exploring while in town as... More

We had a marvelous day at the Mass MOCa even though we only saw 2 exhibits. Nick Cave was wonderful. Such creativity. We strolled and enjoyed. Then we found the Sol Lewitt exhibit. Extraordinary. Don't miss the video on how it all came together. We were enthralled with the works. Don't miss it.

MASS MoCA is always a fascinating museum for a visit because it changes from season to season. At the moment, they have an incredible exhibit on display by Nick Cave. It is worth seeing as the exhibit is highly original, thought-provoking and memorable. It's hard to describe in words--you will have to go see it for yourself.

This is a very great venue. Dome exhibits are permanent but the revolving exhibits are wonderful. For North Adams residents the local library has passes.The museum store and café are lovely. Well worth the trip.

Whether or not you're into modern art, exploring MoCA is well worth your time. Before entering you will find yourself looking at trees growing upside down and from there it only gets better. I've been through several times and I have to say I have not understood everything each artist was attempting to express through their exhibit but the shear... More

We already love Mass MoCA. What was different this time was that we were coming with a large group celebrating a 60th birthday and guided highlight tours were recommended as an excellent way for a group to be introduced to the museum. That whole experience was great. The museum bent over backwards in working with us to set it up... More
