The Worcester Art Museum first opened its doors in the spring of 1898. The institution, founded by Stephen Salisbury III "for the benefit of all the people," today houses more than 38,000 works of art representing more than 50 centuries of creative spirit. Some of the things you can see includes paintings by Monet and Gauguin, the sculpture "Shipwrecked Mother and Child" by Edward Augustus Brackett, the John Woodman Higgins Armory Collection and a Japanese handscroll.
The Worcester Art Museum (WAM) offers private tours, lectures, gallery talk, concerts and performances throughout the year. You can sign up for an art class or workshop where you can learn hand-on about knightly armor. There is also a Museum Café and a Museum Shop.
