We went here on a rainy vacation day, but had planned to go regardless of weather. Should have scheduled more time to spend here as we really didn't do it justice trying to squeeze too many things into one day. If I lived locally I think I would visit at least once or twice a year. Very pleasant spot- view... More

This little art museum highlights the artists who were once part of an art colony in Ogunquit, contemporaries of Hemingway and others, they did artwork that is both intriguing and evocative. At the time we visited, they were doing a Wyeth exhibit, with works by all three generations, but mostly those of Andrew. The space is intimate, and the lighting... More

OMAA is a real surprise and true gem in terms of seaside locations in Maine. The museum itself offers a great set of collections, especially the local artist scene, which goes back to the time Ogunquit was a thriving artist community. If that's not enough, when you walk in and see the amazing ocean view through the hugh glass wall... More

While neither of us are art snobs we felt it would be nice to check out the museum. While the entry price of $10 per person may seem a little steep for a small museum once inside the artwork and sculpture made the cost worthwhile. We were greeted by volunteers who provided us a brief overview of the museum and... More

Neat, clean, small museum, showcasing the work of local artists. Pretty setting and view. Nice gift shop which sells appealing (albeit expensive) gift items. Pleasant activity during inclement weather.

It was raining when we got to the museum, a perfect day to view a perfect little art museum with wonderful views of the ocean and a nice collection of contemporary American art. It stopped raining I time to let us walk the beautiful sculpture gardens and look out over Perkins Cove. A very nice experience

On a foggy and rainy Maine day we found this museum. The collection of American Art is limited but good and also includes works by artists from Ogunquit's art colony of the early 20th century. For me I loved the outside grounds and spent more time outside than in. Sculptures, wonderful plantings and of course the ocean is right there... More

Everyone in my part of 6 loved this place. We took some of the best photos of the trip behind the museum in the ocean side gardens. The location of this museum is world class ocean front property! I will most definitely go back to this spot when back in Ogunquit. The museum was so so but the small fee... More
