Best place to admire contemporary art and student work. But check the schedule before entering to see the display lines up with your taste. Plenty of hassle free parking and ambience to enjoy.

Our son is at Brandeis so we have visited the Rose Art Museum several times. It has exhibitions that change so there is always something new and interesting to see. Worthwhile to visit if you are in the area.

A tiny art museum at Brandeis. Not much of a collection, but go there if you're on campus or in the neighborhood.
