Home to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, one of the world’s most impressive collections of fine art; Mass MoCA, the country’s most fertile site for large scale new art; and the “small but big” Worcester Art Museum – Massachusetts has a gallery for everyone. Plus, there’s a whole Museum of Bad Art, and one that’s free if your name is Isabella. Move your feet at the Jacob’s Pillow dance festival, catch yourself clapping for the world famous Boston Symphony Orchestra or banging your head in the birthplace of hardcore punk. And don’t leave without experiencing some drama at one of our amazing theaters, from The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in The Berkshires, to Worcester’s majestic Hanover Theatre, to Boston’s storied theater district. Visit the Massachusetts Cultural Council website for more information on the arts in Massachusetts.
