Cultural Amenities

Rich culture is a hallmark of Northampton. A blend of history, higher education, and natural beauty underpins the area’s artistic heritage. Northampton is home to internationally known musicians, artists, writers, and performers as well as a host of galleries, museums, shops, and theatres. Cultural and educational opportunities and social happenings are plentiful, thanks in part to the Five College Consortium — Smith College, Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
