Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art – North Adams, Massachusetts

The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) is a museum located in the old Arnold Print Works Factory building complex in North Adams, Massachusetts. Built by the Arnold Print Works, which operated on the site from 1860 to 1942, the complex was opened with 100,000 square feet of exhibit space in the late 1980s after a series of fundraising efforts. In 2008 the site was expanded to 130,000 square feet. This is one of the largest centers for contemporary art in the United States. The large space allows room for very large art pieces and is also a center for performing arts in the area. The museum and performing arts center has attracted interest from around the country and has revitalized the entire area attracting artists and tourists alike.

The space itself is worth a visit for its 19th century architecture
