Hours & Admission
The Williams College Museum of Art is located on the campus of Williams, a liberal arts college, in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
An active, collecting museum, we feature a broad range of exhibitions that challenge assumptions about art, history, and the world in which we live. We look forward to welcoming you to our museum. All of our exhibitions and programs are free and open to all.
Exciting changes afoot!
Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960—1980, will soon fill our upstairs galleries, along with 72° LA Art from the Collection. Check back here for behind-the-scenes photos of the installation in progress.
While we’re preparing, the top floor of the museum is temporarily closed. Visit our downstairs galleries and drop into our Rose study storage space to get a look at our new acquisition, Joan Mitchell’s Sunflower VI. Join us in a conversation as we think out loud and make plans to exhibit it this winter. Check out the Programs page for more information on this and other summer events.
