Smith College has long had a strong art/art history department and a fine teaching collection. The "new" museum building (opened 2003, part of the Brown Fine Arts Center, Polshek Partnership Architects) is an elegant space, classical in organization, sheathed in traditional red brick that is...More

The Smith College Museum of Art has small but diverse and wonderful permanent collection. There is also usually one or two special exhibits that are almost always worth visiting. It is perfect for a one hour visit.

Manageable size, quality content. This is a fine local attraction and oasis of reflection. The collection of US, European and special exhibits makes this an excellent stop.

It was a spur of the moment visit. We had gone to Hungry Ghost Bread, down the hill, and spotted the museum. I thought it was free since most of the college museums around here are. Not... $5 for adults and kids under 12 free....More

We always enjoy visiting art museums on college campuses and had a nice experience at this museum. It is a nice size and the exhibit was very nice. Walking the campus is also very special.

This museum is beautiful. The collection of works are impressive. There are studies here for Sunday in The Park. The bathrooms alone, which are artist designed on the first floor are worth the trip.
