Discovering a hidden gem on a spring day
Jun 15, 2014 by: MirabelleL_12 from Frederick, Maryland
The museum is situated by a spacious natural park facing a clear lake with jumping fishes and graceful swans. The entrance is welcoming and the side glass pavilion reveals a beautiful Diana sculpture (see photo). This museum has great layout for comfortable and relaxed viewing of the collections ranging from classic to modern pieces. There are also a small room dedicated to impressive glass art collections. I am indeed impressed by my discovery visit of the museum!
Nice little gem

We were in Hagerstown for another event and decided to visit the art museum. It is in a beautiful location next to the lake. At first it didn't seem like much but it is very nicely laid out and so much bigger than it looks. The artwork was amazing for such an out of the way town. Really enjoyed seeing an original Norman Rockwell painting and the Danish art. They also had a nice pottery exhibit, which we really enjoyed. You could easily spend a couple of hours there and we thought it was certainly worth the stop.
known as the "best kept secret"

This is a beautiful art museum, next to a lake within the city park. There is a constant change of art, for those who like to frequent it.
A gem of a Museum!

This is an amazing venue for art. It has a wonderful and varied collection of art. Not only paintings-but pottery, crystal, silver, furniture. The quilt collection was beautiful! The museum itself is laid out beautifully. Don't miss the gift shop--interesting pieces that are quite affordable.
Small museum with big name artists

The museum seems to be very small at first, however, the galleries have plenty of art to keep you engaged. I was surprised to see a Rodin sculpture and Norman Rockwell painting in an out of the way museum. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Grounds are beautiful. No admission fee! Worth the trip.
