We were actually there for a wedding reception but we really enjoyed the displays of art. It is a smaller venue but the art and photography was high caliber. I am not sure if there is an admission fee but it is a nice center.

It's a beautiful place to come in and appreciate some amazing art work, no pushy gallery girls trying to get you to buy art or acting snooty because they think only they get the art. And even if you are clearly just a tourist in shirts and a t-shirt you aren't looked down on by the well dressed attendant who is always happy to chat about art or recommend a nice place for lunch!

We were wandering through Mystic when we came upon the Arts Center and decided to see what was inside. We didn't know what to expect, as there was a kids' art class being held on the lawn, but inside was a small art museum that had a donation box instead of an entrance fee. We wandered about for quite a while studying the impressive, if not huge, array of art. This is a 100-year old artist's colony, and one can really get the feel of how the town grew up around it. An excellent visit and a nice break from our hectic day.

Charming center with a wide variety of art open to the public for free. Current exhibit celebrating the history of the center.

Mystic CT doesn't have that much to do - if you have a quiet moment you'd do well to stop in here. The art is "real" meaning it isn't a lot of big name junk. Much of it is beautiful and harmonious. The executive director has a mustache like Salvador Dali, and in my opinion he merits it. He literally digs into thousands of pieces to find the best, and several promising artists and younger (or newer, I should say) artists are on display there. The setting is serene and contemplative, and even if you have only 15 minutes you can find some art that will bring joy to your day.
