Worcester Art Museum

This central Massachusetts museum houses a collection that includes works by European and American artists as well as Asian, Greek and Roman art.

Reviewed By CharleneSokal - Worcester, Massachusetts

A unique collection of late 19th/early 20th century photographs is on view until the 25 of Feb. The photos are of an African/American and Native American community living in Worcester. Aside from the photos as images, many of them have been identified with families still residing in Worcester. These add to the texture of the city and connects the families with their ancestors, a unique experience.

Elm Draught House Cinema

Reviewed By Lydia B - Worcester, Massachusetts

Going to movies here is relaxing and very family friendly. AND their best feature is Patriots games - all season - they can't charge admission so you're only expense is snacks. They have a beer and wine license as well. AND the bathrooms are clean and convenient. I have been taking my grandsons there for years and believe me on a stormy Sunday - as we are known to have around here - there is no better option than to go to The Elm. We meet friends and family there, easy access from Rt. 20 and 146.

Purgatory Chasm State Reservation

Reviewed By Joseph J

What a great place for a quick hike that is both fun and gives lots of options you can make this as easy or as difficult as you want. A pleasant stroll down the middle of the chasm or an adventure over and under rocks some the size of small houses. Once you get to the end of the chasm you can walk back on either rim for awesome views.

Reviewed By ogogolby - Sutton, Massachusetts

Barely better than it's neighbor Hillcrest CC, Pine Ridge is an 18 hole course with some interesting holes but needs some grooming. The kitchen has food ranging from terrific to less than edible depending on who the cook is on your day. Pro shop is always friendly. Parking can be a challenge.

We came in from out of town to see a touring Broadway musical. What a beautiful place ad the volunteer staff are really nice and knowledgeable. Great acoustics. Only complaint is that I have long legs ad some of the seats don't have enough leg room, but that's a problem I have a lot of places. Would come back again.

Buffumville Lake

Reviewed By Steen33

Be sure to explore the waters on both sides of the road by paddling through the tunnel. Once you paddle past the swimming area you are on an undeveloped pond with active beavers down the far end. The other end has lots of waterfowl and you can get out at the dam to take a good look at it. Minimal powered boat traffic.

Visitors to the birthplace are guided through the historic house as they learn about Clara Barton's role as a Civil War battlefield nurse and as founder of the American Red Cross. The museum displays items which belonged to Miss Barton, including her Civil War field desk and a quilt signed by Civil War veterans.

Reviewed By gina3981 - Brewster, Massachusetts

I visited the Clara Barton birthplace in June of 2012. It is located in a peaceful area tucked next to an idyllic summer camp. The tour guide gave me a wonderful tour of the house and I even got to see a document signed by Abraham Lincoln! I learned so much I didn't know about Clara Barton and was impressed with how the soldiers of that era showed so much respect and gratitude to her by making her a quilt. Lovely place to visit.

EcoTarium

Experience hands-on exhibits and make new discoveries, indoors and outdoors, at the EcoTarium in Worcester. As New England's leading museum for science and nature, the EcoTarium offers three floors of interactive exhibits, exciting shows in the Alden Digital Planetarium: A National Geographic Theater, daily Science Discovery programs, live animal habitats, nature trails through forest and meadow environments, and unlimited play in the expansive Nature Explore(R) Outdoor Exhibit. Rain or shine, summer or winter, there's always something fun for the whole family to discover at the EcoTarium.

Reviewed By friantfoodsnob - friant, california

Took my seven year old grandson to the EcoTarium on a Friday and spent the day there. He loved all the interactive displays and hands on activities. The Tornado chamber was one of his favorites. The outside play area is good too with musical activities and instruments to explore. The planetarium shows were well suited to young children and he enjoyed them.

All and all a good place to take kids for the day and not run out of things for them to do there. We will be back!

Crompton Collective

Reviewed By LeisaS - Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Loved the variety of crafts, repurposed items, and antiques. Pretty impossible to get out of there without opening your wallet lol I think Seed to Stem upstairs may be part of the Collective and that shop is AMAZING! Plants, fossils, geodes, taxidermy, ...the displays are just visually riveting! Metered parking on the street is a pain, so park in the rear and use that entrance to access the building.
