MOBA History:
The Museum of Bad Art is a community-based, not-for-profit institution dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and glory. MOBA was founded in the fall of 1993 and presented its first show in March of 1994. The response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA’s collection and ambitions have grown exponentially.
Initially, MOBA was housed in the basement of a private home in Boston. This meager exhibition space limited the museum to be a regional cultural resource for the New England area.
As the only museum dedicated to bringing the best bad art to the widest audiences, they felt morally compelled to explore new, creative ways of bringing this priceless collection of quality bad art to a global audience.
MOBA was an instant media success. In the early days, MOBA was celebrated in articles in The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Wired, the London Times, and many more publications around the world. Recently, attention from NPR,, Harvard Magazine and dozens of small and large media outlets continues to grow their audience.
They also continue to connect with their fans through Facebook, MOBA news email, YouTube videos, their website, and MOBA books. Click here to become a friend of MOBA!


Dorchester: Never been to the DOT? Not OFD? (That’s lingo for Originally From Dorchester). Technically Dorchester is part of Boston proper and located super-close to downtown, so you have no excuses. This could be be the very reason you explore the city a little bit more and we’re certain you’ll be glad you did.



Come hang out in our Boston taproom, Hopservatory and outdoor and rooftop patios. We have a 20 line tap system with plenty of varieties to choose from so you can sample and taste new craft beers and chat with our Head Brewer about his recipes. We also serve cider and wine!



As you might expect, we have a ton of ongoing activities in our Boston brewery that are all things beer-related. From fresh beer launches, festivals and plenty of fun events for everyone, we’ve got you covered. Contact us for private beer events like weddings, birthday parties and more!
