The renovated museum is amazing and the collection of art objects is outstanding! The collection extends from various early Roman, Greece and Asian to contemporary art. This is a must see museum.

Stopped in at the Fogg Art Museum for a brief visit and stayed all afternoon. The three floors of art covered a number of periods and styles, all very tastefully arranged. Security personnel were also well-versed in what was displayed, which was an interesting plus.

I had gone to this museum thinking it’s a small university museum with a few notable pieces in the collection, that we could see in an hour or so. It’s quite the opposite - quite a large, impressive collection spanning three floors. I love art...More
