A very interesting collection of folk art. Get a tour by a docent to help put folk art into perspective vs fine arts. The Tramp Art exhibit was outstanding.

I work within walking distance of this museum and have visited it numerous times. It really is a feast for the eyes and an education at the same time. Budget several hours for this gem on Museum Hill.

I can make the above statement because I asked. Be sure if you are able to get a docent to give you a tour of the permanent collection. Without Florence Bartlett his museum would not exist. Alexander Girard did an amazing job of collecting, designing...More
