The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts is a clearly unexpected find in the hinterlands of Western Maryland. In truth, its collections are astounding and the museum is one of the top-rated in the State. It's a "must see" to visitors in the area.....and a frequent must see for residents. Take a break from touring the Great Masters and fine sculpture to take a walk around the adjacent lake and City Park. If you're a real tourist, bring your lunch a sit out under on of the several pavilions close to the museum....and then return for part II of your museum visit. Really worth the visit. Allow 2+ hours. Closed on Mondays and some holidays(?).
Very nice museum

Good place to spend a sunday afternoon, it's right in the Hagerstown park, after the museum, you can walk around a scenic lake
Great small museum!

I really enjoyed this museum. It is located in a beautiful park in downtown Hagerstown. They have a very interesting collection with everything from Old Masters to 20th century American Art. There was also a very nice exhibit of local artists. The staff was incredibly friendly and I found a couple of fun things in the small giftshop. Definately worth a visit if you are in the area.
A deightful find in Hagerstown

Our Red Hat group came to visit this museum and although I had not made a request for a docent and a tour, there was a volunteer who had stopped at the museum to deliver something who said she'd be delighted to show us around. They had a special Civil War exhibit at the time (this was a month after the 150th anniversary of the battle at Gettysburg) and there were wonderful artifacts to be seen. Their permanent collection is also impressive for a small museum. If you have a day in or near Hagerstown, don't miss this one!
