  • New exhibit on Paul Revere, my old favorites are back, the staff was very welcoming, so glad the WAM is open again!  more »
  • Attended a wedding reception here. Unique venue for the area without travelling all the way into Boston.  more »

  • 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.
