This museum is right on the campus and is free. It has 2 levels of many kinds of art. Many exhibits really work to educate the viewer on how to look at and appreciate art. So it is great for kids too.

I was greeted at the entrance- I loved the exhibits up stairs and the permanent collection downstairs. There were even people available for questions and conversation. My boyfriend and I loved it!

A very nice, diverse, well-displayed collection of art and artifacts. Located in the center of Hanover with easy access to other local attractions.

This really is a gem of a museum, small enough to peruse over the course of a couple of hour. It's greatest asset is the thoughtfulness of the curators, and the expository essays that accompany each piece. Rather than the usual blather that accompanies many...More
