Wadsworth Atheneum - Review

The Wadsworth Atheneum is an art museum that was built in 1842 and is well renowned for its distinct collection of Hudson River landscapes, European art, American and French Impressionist paintings and some modern marvels. The Wadsworth Atheneum is actually one of the oldest still-in-operation art museums in USA. Some of the most prominent artists whose artpieces are featured here are Salvador Dali, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio and Frederic Church. Apart from all these exhibitions, the museum building itself is a work of beauty with its castle like architecture and various statues erected over the premises.

Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford Reviews

  • I love this museum. Oldest Art museum in the nation, and just a beautiful space in a vibrant part of town. Parking can be tricky, but totally worth any hassle. I try to come here as often as possible. Exhibits change frequently and it 100% transforms that part of the museum. A great collection, really. The Great Hall is just stunning. Plus, area students and Hartford residents get in for free!

  • Definitely visit here! This is one of the best museums I've ever been to. It has a wide collection of various artists from classical masters to Modern Art that will thrill any and all art lovers. Definitely plan to spend all day here. If you arrive at the opening of the doors and stay until they tossed you out, you could see quite a bit of all the art and have a wonderful time all day long. If you have the opportunity, definitely make a multiple day trip to this museum. I keep coming back here for the Thomas Cole paintings and the other wonderful Hudson River School artists. Frederick Church and other masters all congregate in one gallery that is a wonder to behold. One of my other favorite galleries is the Morgan 1 Great Hall. It's laid out like a gallery that you might find 200 years ago with paintings stacked from the floor to the upper reaches of the ceiling. There's such a wide variety of different artists and styles of European art, so be sure to grab one of the guides at each end of the hall so that you can learn more about all of the paintings gracing the walls.

  • The Wadsworth Atheneum is a fine mid-size museum with interesting exhibits and a good permanent collection spanning centuries of art, but, if you've experienced some of the renowned museums of the world, it may be a bit of a letdown. If you're from out of state and find yourself in the Hartford area, it's worth a visit.

  • A stellar art museum with pieces spanning thousands of years and representing cultures from around the globe. Whatever your taste in art - from ancient sculpture to impressionist paintings to contemporary pieces - you can find something to appreciate in this museum. I highly recommend the Wadsworth Atheneum and it is one if not the top attraction in Hartford. The museum has such a wide array of pieces it can be almost overwhelming, and I found the tours (free with admission) to be a great way to get oriented!

  • The Wadsworth always has something worth seeing. The variety there is refreshing. I love the Baroque section and the collection of contemporary artists is a feast for thought. Only draw back is the on street paid parking.
