It was great to see all the buildings that Hamilton has added or remodeled since I graduated in 1985 and the Wellin Museum of Art should not be missed when you tour the campus. It is an architectural gem and a piece of art itself.

Toured the gallery during the Alyson Shotz exhibition. Her work was brilliantly curated! The design of the museum is world class.

This two-year-old museum, right in the heart of Hamilton's campus, is filled with glass that makes it seem larger than it actually is. The College has brought in a new curator to keep the displays relevant. It's well-worth a visit

unusual art exhibits, some involving slides, moving objects, creative and imaginative. I'm personally just not in love with the modern style outer building, inside is great.

This is not a large museum, so it is hard to recommend a long drive just to see the Wellin, but it would be an absolute mistake to come to the area and miss this art museum. They put on challenging shows, it is a first rate venue but not stuffy. Modern and crisp, but still welcoming.

Big investment for very few exhibits. Student senior show in May 2013 was the best exhibit since the museum opened. Money should have been saved to keep tuition down.

This is a new addition to Hamilton College and features a rotating display of modern artworks that are most interesting as well as artifacts and photograpy from their collection.

Mostly modern art. The first floor cases have some antiquities, but no labels! Art for the sake of art
