Last year, I compiled this list of the Lesser Known Art Museums in the Northeast for Huffington Post. Like the above referenced art galleries, the following small city and smaller town Art Museums, Artists home studios, and Art Centers in the Northeast are also often overlooked and shouldn’t be. Stop in to any of the following institutions, some modest, some grand, and you may discover a new favorite in an unlikely place. Click on any link to the town or city in which a museum is located and you’ll find plenty more to do, as well as our best recommendations for food and lodging; providing a fun and well-rounded getaway where you’d least expect it.
