After 83 years, Higgins Armory Museum officially closed its doors on December 31, 2013. Fortunately, the museum's core collection lives on at the Worcester Art Museum (WAM) just a few miles away. On Friday, March 28, WAM opened a NEW exhibition, entitled Knights!, combining works from its collection with those from the newly integrated Higgins Collection.
