The Hood is to the left and behind the Hopkins Centre for the Arts. Put aside a leisurely hour - or two - they have some fine and fascinating pieces all beautifully displayed and illuminated. Each piece has a well written information card beside it.

This is a great little art museum in downtown hanover. We visited expecting a mediocre art exhibit and we found a very pleasant surprise in the form of a great collection.

This Hood is a very nice museum for its size and location. We always stop in whenever we are in town to see what the current exhibits are. It is worth an hour or so to wander around.

The Hood Museum of Art is located on the campus of Dartmouth College. We saw several undergraduate groups in different locations in the museum. A good mix of art styles and changing exhibits. Do not miss the Assyrian carvings, absolutely spectacular!!

A little gem right in ther heart of Dartmouth College, this museum has a small, but interesting collection. And on top of it, it is welcoming and free of charge. Worth a visit.

You would say a small museum but it is actually big, huge for a such small but prestigious Ivy League. From ancient art, over Eskimo's people art to contemporary art pieces. If at Dartmouth must visit. :)
