Enjoyed a quick visit to this charming college museum a few days ago. We had to speed walk the entire thing because we arrived 10 minutes before closing, but we were still able to get a decent feel for the collection. Will revisit next month...More

We came between shows, so the upper floor was closed off and we only saw what we assumed was the permanent collection. Nice variety, well curated. It was a short visit, but well worth it as we were already in Middlebury. Outside art is sparse...More

People will tell you the sound is wonderful. Performers allegedly say it is great when they are on stage. I have sat in every area of this concert hall over the past six years and find the sound to be muddy. At the start of...More

We visited the Mahaney on a Friday morning when it wasn't crowded. Two floors of very well curated, compact collections of visual arts ranging from 3000 bce to the present. It's a relatively small center and hence easy to see and enjoy in a reasonable...More

The Middlebury College Museum of Art is a true gem and a must visit. The collection on display is first rate and extremely well presented. The descriptions accompanying the works are thorough and very informative. The collection is surprisingly extensive, but the works on display...More

This center on the edge of the Middlebury College campus offers a world-class experience. The seats are outstanding and the sound-system and acoustics are excellent. I have attended several concerts here and have always been impressed.

Stopped here on an easy walk through campus with my son. This museum is free to the public and operates on donation. Great exhibits!

Fabulous array of Sabra Fields works from several decades, with a video interview with her for background. So worth a stop. And the photo exhibit of the Loving family is fascinating as well.

Our chorus, Vermont Choral Union, performed recently on MaHaney concert stage, this is an accoustically gorgeous space. Both from the performer's and audience's perspective, this hall makes it easy to hear. Simple, clean decor adds to enjoyment. Middlebury College rocks.

You can't beat a beautiful little art museum with free admission, and some real gems in their collection. Don't miss the Calder mobile hanging in the back hallway. Also, there are some big pieces outside that are fun to explore.
