Mechanics Hall should be on your list to visit. Considered one of the most perfect concert halls acoustically as well as it's historical significance, the variety of paid and free concerts make it a must stop for visitors whatever the season.

Love seeing plays at Mechanics Hall! Students have enjoyed Charlotte's Web and Aesop's Fables here. Pretty venue and impressive architecture ~ Worcester's gem. A great wedding venue as well. Love the history and stately detail of this magestic beauty.

We attended a Music Worcester concert by the Venice Baroque Orchestra in Worcester's Mechanics Hall. The architecture of the Hall is spectacular and matched by wonderful acoustics.

Saw the Venice Baroque Orchestra play there last night. They were amazing and the sound in Mechanics Hall was perfect. The place is old, but beautiful. First time there, experience was great.

Beautiful theater. A gem right in the middle of Worcester. And everyone who works there does all they can to make every concert and event an evening to remember. Bravo!
