Lovely building, great exhibitions space, nice access to study materials in state of the art display cases. The show we saw represented a great use of the Wellin's permanent collection, assembled to illustrate recurring themes and variations from a variety of periods and cultures. Quite...More

It was great to see all the buildings that Hamilton has added or remodeled since I graduated in 1985 and the Wellin Museum of Art should not be missed when you tour the campus. It is an architectural gem and a piece of art itself.

Big investment for very few exhibits. Student senior show in May 2013 was the best exhibit since the museum opened. Money should have been saved to keep tuition down.
