It's hard to describe, because unlike most museums which have far more art than they can display, Mass MoCA has virtually unlimited space. Some of the installations require you to spend a good bit of time, but the time will be well spent. Whether you...More

We could have spent the entire day in the Sol Lewitt building. It is three floors showing his progression over his career. They say that you really need a week to see the entire museum and I can believe it. We will return when we...More

We loved the building, a great variety of exhibits. My husband kept going back to a passageway that had speakers hidden and played various voices. Loved the pallets, musical instruments, we could have spent hours more there

One of the most fun things we did while driving through New England. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of contemporary art, you should consider going. The buildings are as interesting as the art. Don’t miss the restrooms under the gift shop in the...More

The museum is contained in a number of old connected mill buildings. It is a large space with large contemporary art gallery areas; each area is focused on very large pieces with each room dedicated to a unique artist. My wife who is an artist...More
