Mass MoCA in a Day!

Did you know that only a 3 hour scenic drive away from #NHV is an amazing little art museum nestled in the Berkshires? Well, there is! And, it's called Mass MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts). Located in North Adams, it's a lovely rt.8 or a less scenic 91 drive that is well within a day trip's limits. Mass MoCA is actually not in any sense little, a restored 19th century factory with over 100,000 sq feet of space being used for art installations, the perfect place for an afternoon stroll of contemporary art. My favorite part of the museum, don't forget to head outside *you may have a hard time finding it if you didn't know it was there*, through the boiler plant, and see the trailer in the sky. After your amazing time at Mass MoCA, head over to Williamstown, a 5 minute drive away and enjoy their tasty food and quirky shops on Spring st. Enjoy!
