Many visitors go straight to Edward Hicks' famous "Peaceable Kingdom," but the museum has lots more, including paintings by Mary Cassatt, Gaugin and Rembrandt.

 

 

The renowned Worcester Art Museum will surprise you.

The collection ranges from ancient Chinese, Egyptian, and Sumerian objects through Roman statuary and mosaics, pre-Columbian artifacts, Japanese ukiyo-e prints and European paintings by the great masters, to American primitives and works by the great American painters.

It's one of those smaller museums with a comprehensive collection studded with masterpieces.

Besides Edward Hicks's famous Peaceable Kingdom, you'll see Gauguin's famous Brooding Woman, Rembrandt's Saint Bartholomew, and Mary Cassatt's Woman Bathing.

By 2014, the museum should also have completed renovations to accommodate the Higgins Armory Museum's outstanding collection of arms and armor. With the closing of the Higgins' own building, the collection will be on view here.

The museum has a pleasant cafe serving soups, salads and sandwiches, wine and beer.

The way to the museum is marked with signs from the city center. Here's a map.
