The Smith College Museum of Art (SCMA), connected with the well-known Smith College, is a prominent art museum in Northampton, Massachusetts  It is considered to be one of the most impressive college museums in the country.  The museum is best known for its remarkable compilation of American and European art of the 19th and 20th centuries, including superb works by Edgar Degas, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Gustave Courbet, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Albert Bierstadt, John Singer Sargent and others.

First established in 1879, the collection has expanded to include nearly 25,000 works of art, including a diverse collection of non-Western art.  It is also a member of the Museums10 collective, a consortium of art, science, and history museums in Western Massachusetts.

The EcoTarium, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is dedicated to the study of science and nature.  The private, non-profit institution was founded in 1825 as the Worcester Lyceum of Natural History and was incorporated in 1884 as the Worcester Natural History Society — EcoTarium's legal identity.  (It is previously known as the New England Science Center.)

The EcoTarium is a family-friendly, indoor-outdoor museum.  It offers three floors of interactive exhibits, exciting shows in the Alden digital planetarium, daily Science Discovery programs, live animal habitats, hikes through forest and meadow nature trails, outdoor imaginative play, and a ride around the grounds (seasonal) on a narrow-gauge train pulled by a scale model of an 1860s steam engine.
