    Fantastic museum, well worth a stop if you're traveling from out of town. My husband and I live in London and are lucky enough to have easy access to world-class art but we were so impressed by NBMAA that we'll definitely come back next time we're in town visiting my family.

    The glass exhibit was out of this world and the permanent exhibits, including funky modern art and design and comics, were also truly impressive.

    Very nice and helpful staff at the front desk, thank you for a wonderful visit!

    Should not be missed. Incredible, focused and intriquing temporary exhibits. The glass exhibit (Chihuly and others) I saw here last summer was the best exhibit I have seen in any New England museum.
