Never knew about this museum until recently. A friend recommended this and we enjoyed a visit here on a cool and windy Maine day. The museum is situated on a cove with a beautiful view. We enjoyed the permanent collection and saw examples of fascinating American artists. We were also fortunate to see an Andrew Wyeth temporary exhibit and also... More

The collection is fairly small but the museum is lovely and well maintained. We enjoyed the photo exhibit very much, the Isles of Shoals images are lovely. The outside is beautiful, make sure you have time to enjoy the outdoor sculptures and gardens. After the bustle of Ogunguit, the museum was a perfect respite of calm and beauty.

This is a not to miss show and so good to experience a little of Andrew, Jamie and NC Wyeth all in one place. The Robert Brown Lethem collection was just awful and sadly in the middle gallery. It spoiled the full experience.

I loved this place from the first time I was there and met Henry Strater. Their permanent collection gives you an idea of all the talented artists who made Ogunquit their home. The brilliant setting and sculpture garden are a treat for the eye.

The museum is wonderful. Check to see if any special events are scheduled. We liked the variety of art that was displayed. We were lucky to attend a special event with Linda Bean who shared her love of Wyeth paintings.

The three of us had a recent trip to this museum and were not disappointed. It is lovely. The grounds are beautiful (although it would be great if the artist's names of the outdoor sculptures were labeled), the museum, although small, very tasteful, and the ocean view is great! We enjoyed the exhibits and would recommend this gem of a... More

This museum is a very small one and it won't take you long to see it all. Save time to admire the lovely gardens and the fun sculptures outside. The gift shop is very nice, hand carved owls, sea creatures, calendars etc..

This museum has beautiful views of the shoreline, it has a spectacular garden and fun outdoor sculptures. We saw a Wyeth exhibit which was superb. The space is deceptively large. The museum manages to stay true to its roots while having some larger scale exhibits.

Small art museum, but has meaningful exhibits. Lovely gift shop. Grounds are oceanfront and a lovely stroll through gardens and sculpture. Go on a sunny day and enjoy the beautiful views. I had bought tickets through Groupon on my recent visit and the person at the desk said I had not printed out a code I needed. Gave me a... More

A bit small but very pleasant. Just beyond Perkins Cove. Good place to go on a rainy day but you will be done in 30-45 min.
