This museum is one of our favorites to go to. They are always working on new and exciting exhibits. During the Christmas Holiday they always have a tree decoration exhibit and it is just beautiful...My family has been going to this exhibit for years now. The museum has very limited parking right in front of it, but there are a... 更多
Not only is this art museum housed in a beautiful building, but the collections within it are amazing. From the room with almost every inch covered in paintings to the sculptures sprinkled throughout to the ancient artifacts, Wadsworth Atheneum is worth a visit!!
Just totally renovated the museum is spacious and bright. The museum itself is a work of art. Beautiful displays of many periods of art. I particularly liked the Hudson River School area but other areas were fascinating also. Some local libraries have free passes if you live within 35 miles and it was on the Bank America credit card deal... 更多
With an afternoon free we decided to visit the Atheneum and we're so glad we did. There were some not-to-be-missed artworks from Warhol, Van Gogh, Zurbaran and Calder (just to name a few), Meissen porcelain collection as well as collections of ancient art and artifacts.

There's ancient pottery and artifacts, Renaissance art, American folk art, everything. American, European, African, Asian.... 更多
We go to art museums like others go to sports events or movies. This one far exceeded my expectations no matter how much my husband raved about it. Actually you could spend far more than 1 or 2 hours here, but our feet just gave out. Plus, we wanted to also see the Butler-McCook house just two blocks down the... 更多
This museum has quite a lot of exquisite paintings - almost every great artist from the last two hundred years is represented here. The building itself is interesting as well. The last hour they let you in for free, which is good if you are on a tight budget - if not you should give yourself a bit more time... 更多
I visited this museum recently with a friend and was quite surprised at the level of quality of the collection considering it is not a high profile facility. Also surprising was the training of the staff. The museum is divided into three connected buildings and there are three floors, so there are some logistical issues that arise, and the staff... 更多
