Always love going to the Worcester Art Museum! They have a small but well chosen collection. You can see the whole thing in one day and not feel overwhelmed as you can in a larger museum. Definitely worth a trip!
The museum itself is easily walkable in an afternoon and though the whole thing isn't HUGE it has a lot of various periods and really well curated and designed collections. We especially loved the huge center atrium with the paired wall mural and floor mosaic. I don't want to describe it and spoil it, it's that good and that visually arresting.
