The work by these fabric artists is amazing . Each piece was inspired by an artifact in the museum. The show is there throughout the summer 2016. A must see in Amherst, MA. Only challenge, the museum is usually only open near the end of the week and weekends.
Located right downtown near the library.

We didn't pay a charge on a weekday morning, which was fine given the collection is small. But despite that it is well curated and with excellent information available on what is there. Beautifully, let me reiterate, GORGEOUSLY mounted and displayed.
There is ZERO parking and none on the street nearby, so be prepared to walk. It would have been nice to encounter some information on that, but given the drought--we walked without issue. And then walked to lunch.

The museum is located in a lovely old building which is the highlight of the visit. There just isn't much to see or learn there. You can be in and out in 10 minutes and wonder what you learned? It just looks like somebody's attic, with assorted things scatterd about...no really interesting stories. The big deal is a dres worn by Emily Dickinson, but you can see that and so much more if you visit the Dickinson Museum, which is a real museum. It doesn't matter how small a museum, but the quality of what you see, something you might have learned that you never knew. You won't find that here.

I wasn't sure what I'd find here. This house, tucked away behind the Jones Library, was strongly associated with a woman named Mabel Loomis Todd, who is best known for (1) either her work on Emily Dickinson's poetry after Emily's death or (2) her affair with Emily's brother. A fascinating figure in her own right, Mabel was a writer, world traveler, collector of artifacts, lecturer, painter--just the sort of person you'd want as a dinner partner. The other exhibit, when I visited the other day, was of textile art inspired by items in the museum, all of it fascinating. The biggest treat for me was Emily's white dress--the real one. (The Emily Dickinson Museum has a replica.) Check the postcards for photos of the dress, a portrait of Mabel, and other treats. Suggested donation for visitors: $5, and worth it.

大学のキャンパスツアーの途中で訪れました。収蔵品は数えきれないくらいあるので、一部のみ展示し、他は柱の中にある収蔵庫に保管してあるそうです。

As an Emily Dickinson fan, you must see this little museum which proudly displays the original dress - enclosed in glass and in an upright case, it is fascinating - don't be fooled by replicas - this is the real one...nice area for purchasing tees, books, gifts...lovely - and in wonderful Amherst - next to the library and across the street from the 'rock' that displays Emily's Amherst Academy - see it and know Amherst history - from knowledgeable folks who will actually answer questions. Great little museum - beautiful grounds; be sure to sit under a tree and read after your visit.

This place is run by a local historical society and seems to be a repository for all kinds of old stuff that nobody else wants. There are a couple of rooms that are somewhat organized. The highlights are Emily Dickinson;s dress and a room that was left as the donor of the house lived in it in the early 1900;s. Other rooms have stuff literally piled up and stuffed in, so that whatever might be of value is not accessible and is probably being damaged.

This place is an interesting contrast to the Emily Dickinson Museum nearby, which is an extremely professional operation.

By the way, the previous review and fossil photos are NOT of this museum.

This is the Strong House, a historical site in Amherst. It is truly one of the oldest buildings in America, and one of the few where guests can go all the way to the top of the house. The garden is amazing, but it's difficult to tell whether that garden belongs to Strong House or the library. There are some fascinating quirks of colonial construction in this old house. There are also some charming colonial artifacts. From there, it gets a little crazy. You will find assorted rooms with disconnected elements and at least one tour guide who makes up the information. I have spent many years studying Colonial history and artifacts, and I was shocked by some of what I was told -- a porcelain tea set (from England ... but it was clearly French) that had to be imported because in 1760 there were no glass blowers in the colony. Really? That's just wrong on so many levels. As in many places, the museum grasps for a connection to some famous person ... in this case, Emily Dickinson and her family ... who, incidentally, have no connection to the house itself ... but draw a loose connection because they lived in Amherst ... and it is the Amherst museum. This site is run by a local historical society. It has become the repository for anything and everything that anyone wants to donate. If it's old, if you are from Amherst, and if you have no interest in having the thing in your house, by all means, send it here! The curator's hands are tied, and items that should be put to auction for the maintenance of the site sit in cabinets -- like several hundred wood planers of odd and assorted sizes, and rooms full of furniture piled on end that are not useful for the displays and eliminate important rooms from the tour. In all, the volunteers who live there have done the best with what they have, but educating their docents could be a lot better. Public restroom facilities would also be a plus, but the library nearby will meet those needs if you tour this site.
