Great permanent collection and special exhibits. Terrific library, and don't forget to go into the library space to check out the view and the Chihuly's on the green roof.

“Great free hidden jewel of Andover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

This museum is a great free place to go. Not too big, so you don't feel overwhelmed by what you have to see.
They switch exhibits on a regular basis, always have artists to come and present their own paintings or photographs. A must see. And it is free.

“Hidden Jem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

The Addison is my backyard museum. It has a wonderful variety of my favorite American art. Its size it just right. You can spend 1-2 hours and come away feeling like you got to see the current selection.We are very fortunate to have this available to our local community.
