Visit during Solid Sound

The Mass MOCA is a great museum with a world class level of exhibitions. The museum space, which occupies old factory space is huge--I believe it is the largest exhibition space in North America.

We never tire of Mass MoCa. Recent Solid SOund festival brought us back to this gem of a place. The art work is always fascinating and the environment is challenging. What a fantastic place for a festival.

How much you like this place may depend on how much you appreciate contemporary art. For me, most of what I've seen at Mass Moca is intriguing and memorable, some has seemed pretentious. Others may have those ratios opposite. Even so, the experience is the museum is unique, in its industrial factory setting, nestled in the mountains.

This museum was overwhelming. The art is varied and impressive. We were unable to see or absorb all of it, so will have to return.

After a weekend spent in NYC'S museums, this turned out to actually be more interesting than the Whitney. Amazing spaces, daring exhibits and also the gift shop has a fun variety of souvenirs.
