  • My favorite museum. Always interesting and stunning exhibits. Literally have had my breath taken away a few times here! Their cafe is also a good place to grab a quick bite!
  • Truly awe-inspiring art installations and performances with an industrial vibe. Hands down, one of my favorite art experiences. We loved MASS MoCA so much we puchased a small vacation home in North Adams within walking distance. Can't recommend enough.
