We had a fabulous visit in the downtown gallery. Can't wait for the museum to reopen. Meantime, take a few minutes to see the show. The staff were both friendly and very knowledgeable.

They are taking great care to present interesting exhibits while the main museum is closed, and to have events around the exhibits that bring depth to the experience. Well worth a visit if you are in Hanover.

While the primary location is being renovated, they have a very cool little storefront on Main Street with really cool exhibits that change frequently. Check it out

unable to access due to construction. There was supposed to be an event here, but there was no way to get in and no signage indicating where the event had been moved to.

The Hood is to the left and behind the Hopkins Centre for the Arts. Put aside a leisurely hour - or two - they have some fine and fascinating pieces all beautifully displayed and illuminated. Each piece has a well written information card beside it.
