Nicely curated exhibits in a lovely old structure. Small but nice. Friendly staff. Easily combined with a visit to The Clark.

One of the best art galleries of its kind. Partially a TEACHING gallery, it is still very worthwhile visiting as a non-Williams College student. They frequently have some free brochures available in the excellent small bookshop.
