Where are we going today?

The Fuller Craft Museum welcomes families.

Free for kids, this is an ever changing range of consistently excellent exhibits, covering a diverse range of themes and mediums. Obviously best for the less boisterous child, this is a fun afternoon for creative types: be prepared to get the paints out when you get home!

Let the children weave stories from the artwork and be inspired. They also run fun, creative summer workshops for children and teenagers, which are worth looking out for.

    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 wouldn't be the place for a huge wedding, or probably...Read More

    A pocket of culture and class. I am still amazed that this museum is tucked away in Brockton! It's a refreshing, quiet nook filled with beautiful things you could take for granted if you weren't 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, they'll find the art in it! I have always been impressed with how accessible they make the displays, too. Don't expect to show up and not "get it"--the information provided about the pieces...Read More

    This is one of the world's 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...Read More

This wouldn't be the place for a huge wedding, or probably for the country club set, but for us it was absolutely perfect.

Don't 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.
