A pocket of culture and class. I am still amazed that this museum is tucked away in Brockton! Its a refreshing, quiet nook filled with beautiful things you could take for granted if you werent careful. I love that they focus both on traveling exhibitions and local craftspeople. From tea kettles to chairs to fused glass to baskets, if it can be made by hand, theyll find the art in it! I have always been impressed with how accessible they make the displays, too. Dont expect to show up and not "get it"--the information provided about the pieces always makes sense and helps you feel "in the know". And their holiday gift shop is a great place to find beautifully made gifts.

We had our wedding at the Museum this July, and it was wonderful. Alicia, the event coordinator, met with us more than once beforehand, and made sure everything was right. We had our ceremony outside and reception inside; it was raining up until about half an hour before the ceremony, and Alicia was outside wiping down chairs herself. The museum is fantastic, and it was wonderful to be able to show something unique to our guests. The woods around the museum were a great place to take pictures. This wouldnt be the place for a huge wedding, or probably for the country club set, but for us it was absolutely perfect.

This is one of the worlds finer small museums. It celebrates the making of things that are beautiful, filled with meaning, and at the same time many are useful. The focus is American, but I have seen several international exhibitions here (most recently in spring 2009 of young Korean jewelers). The buildings are well designed and fit their setting, a New England suburban forest with a large pond. The only negative is that it is a long rather shappby walk from the station. I am very tired of the American assumption that everyone has or should have a car. I prefer to take the train then walk, or to ride my bike.
This museum is not welcoming to children. My family travels around the country and we enjoy visiting local museums as a way of learning about local culture and art. The security guard at this museum advised one of the children in our group that he was following us to be sure we didnt touch anything. It was both inappropriate and unnecessary as our kids are well versed in museum behavior. Further, he should have addressed one of the parents in our group and not made the kids so uncomfortable.
Very cute and interesting little museum. When we visited, there were displays focusing on enamel arts, Danish fiber artist Grethe Wittrock, art quilts, and more. My favorite was the mobile art titled Icarus by Mark Davis. It took us under and hour to tour the museum.
Beautiful location. I have visited it many times, enjoying each experience. The exhibits displayed in both the temporary and permanent collections are stunning. Nice view of the lake. Best when seen in spring and summer especialy.
The craft work is remarkable! Really enjoyed the little time spent there with the grandchildren.
Spent some time looking at the amazing Steampunk/Brockton exhibit AND did some Christmas shopping!
This tiny local museum of "folk" art offers some marvelous insights into contemporary artists.
A magnificent gem a stone throws away! Free to all Brockton Residents - you just gotta go!
