The museum was a phenomenal place to have our wedding ceremony and reception. The backdrop of well-curated art was perfect and fun for our large (170-person) event; the white marble steps leading up to what had been ticket booths when the building was a train station were a superlative place to hold our ceremony and easily be seen and heard...

This museum is in a beautifully maintained train station, a delightful example of adaptive reuse. The old ticket area is now a children's room. They have various small exhibits ( no permanent collection) and when we visited the two main exhibits are each provocative and ones I won't forget. One was about guns; the other was a photography exhibit about... More

Brattleboro's Railroad Station was converted in 1972 to an interesting Museum of Arts with tours, functions. Mara Williams, the Chief Curator, through her Labor of Love, has turned this museum into a bucket list place to visit when in Brattleboro!

I love this little museum for many reasons. It doesn't have a permanent collection so the shows are changed regularly and are always fresh, interesting, beautiful and sometimes challenging, I always enjoy the aesthetics of their exhibits, meaning that the art either informs, inspires, or simply transports the viewer. Once there was a show where I think every work of... More

I recently visited this quaint museum that was coverted from an old railroad station that just celebrated its 100th birthday. The party was a huge success with a live band outside on the front lawn and the birthday cake and cupcakes were delicious. They had an interesting exhibit on gun owners.

The Museum is located in the former railroad station in Brattleboro adjacent to the Connecticut River. There were interesting architectural plans which gave one some sense of the glorious history of rail travel. The exhibits change from time-to-time, so you may want to check before you go. Entrance fee was reasonable and discount for seniors. Worth your time on a... More

Took the grand kids, they liked that it was small and quick and in an old train station. I liked that it was free for them.

This is worth a destination trip - small but a jewel with well thought out exhibits. Local food and markets make the whole place worth a trip.

Made it for the "Up and Arms" Exhibit, and although the museum itself is small, it really is a treat; goes to show quality versus quantity really matters. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff with excellent curation. Took us about an hour to take in the work, with a 10 minute walk right from downtown Brattleboro.

This small museum is amazing! In a limited space they host a variety of often changing exhibits, all different, all interesting. We visited for the first time last week, but we will definitely return!
