Museums below the radar

It's still 97 degrees out, but the wind has picked up, blowing around a few thoughts about yesterday, when a couple of commenters mentioned art collections I hadn't heard of: the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, Connecticut, and the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario, just north of Toronto. Just as New England seems surprisingly underserved by art writers, it also lacks an easy directory to its art museums, or none that Googling in heatstroke-inducing weather can turn up. What's your favorite underknown New England museum? What the heck, let's throw in the mid-Atlantic and eastern Canada, and I'll build a little directory for them myself. It's too hot for criticism.
