On a post-Christmas visit
Jan 01, 2015 by: LarryArmold from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Location is easy to access, as is the museum's collection, which is quite outstanding for a small, boutique-like entity. From medieval portraits to original Rodin(s) and a Rockwell; luminists to sculptures to glassware and silver. Docents are available, even eager, to engage w/ visitors and answer questions. "Art is in the eye of the beholder" is certainly in play here, as we question - and questioned - why many of the items displayed warrant display. Even the docents admitted to not liking some of the exhibits selected, but exhibits - and tastes - change. This really is a wonderful "hidden gem" of Washington County. Admission is free too. Well-worth an hour (and more) to peruse and explore.

Take a friend with you to this art museum, better yet take a date who loves to shop. Visit this place, first. Walk a few blocks in the downtown district and pick a place to stop and eat. Afterwards go to the outlet stores. You will leave, not only with the goods bought in stores but with the feeling that you experienced something worthwhile with some one else, the feel of a small town... and a brush with culture!
Don't miss this one

It is not your typical large city art museum, but is full of many fine examples of art from local to historical inside a wonderful building on a lovely site. it takes about 1-2 hours to walk through the dozen or so rooms depending on your interests. This was our last stop before leaving the city and was well worth the time.

We came upon this museum by accident -- just following signs to the City Park. From outside, it doesn't appear to be that large, but it is and it holds a wonderful selection of art! There is NO fee to get in and the staff was very friendly. If you are fond of art, or just interested in seeing something different, you must stop by. And don't forget to stop by the gift shop -- I bought this cute hat at a VERY reasonable price! As a matter of fact, why not make a day of it? After enjoying the art inside the museum, walk around the park and enjoy the art of nature!

This museum is larger than it looks from the parking lot. We were very pleased with the variety of items from decorative arts to fine art. It's spacious, not over-packed, so you can actually walk around and look at each item, without distracting overlap.
