The Andrew Wyeth exhibit is very good and the gardens are lovely. You get a great view of the museum from a boat in Perkins Cove. It is also a reasonable admission fee.

Beautiful setting for a museum. Went for the Wyeth exhibit, but enjoyed the gardens and outdoor sculptures the most.

Not to be missed. The permanent collection is outsrtanding (look for a wood sculptuire "The Tyrant") , and the current Andrew Wyeth exhibit from the collection of Linda L. Bean is excellent.

I've visited Ogunquit many times, but this was my first visit to the Ogunquit Museum of American Art. We enjoyed the varied art collections (including the Andrew Wyeth collection) inside the museum, but most enjoyed the sculptures that were on display outside on the beautiful property. I'm so glad we visited and recommend this as a stop even if you're... More

Linda Bean's collection of Andrew Wyeth paintings was an unexpected delight on our trip to Ogunquit. The Museum of Art is located in one of the most beautiful points overlooking the ocean.

We happened upon a poster announcing a showing of Andrew Wyeth paintings at the museum and were very interested as we do appreciate Wyeth and love going to the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland to see his works. I wasn't aware of the great little museum in Ogunquit. The museum is located right around the corner from Perkin's Cove and has... More

We arrived to find absolutely beautiful gardens with rustic sculptures, metal sculptures, modern sculptures. There was a plein air painting demo on the cliff, which amplified the quality of the light and natural beauty of our surroundings. It was interesting to see how a painter would interpret the scene. The artwork inside was interesting and presented in a professional way.... More

Do make time for this small but fine museum when you are in Ogunquit. There is a Wyeth exhibition on at present and we learned a good deal about the rise of the artists' colony around Ogunquit in the last 19th century, thanks to the docents and to various aspects of the permanent collection. The grounds are very nice -... More

I always love this place. Lovely art selection, magnificent view, and great outdoor sculptures. Wish they would make it handicapped accessible.
