Behind the gothic facade of this castle-like museum, the oldest operating public museum in America, is a stunning collection of art that ranges from early Greek, Hudson River School and Surrealism works. The museum also hosts events like Jazz brunches, art workshops, and special tours.

The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art prides itself on being the oldest art museum in America. It's has some incredibly beautiful works of art, and is definitely worth a stop while in downtown Hartford.

Amazing collection in an unlikely location. The Wadsworth houses some of the best art to be expected of a museum of such modest size. It's certainly a must-see for any art or culture lover.

The Wadsworth is a first class art gallery, one of the oldest in the United States. The collection has been developed over the years to a remarkable level. When I go to Hartford, I enjoy looking at some of their masterpieces over and over and over.
