This is an amazing place which you might not expect. The building is beautifully located with a view on the Cape and you can enjoy the grounds as well. It concentrates on artists who painted locally or used to summer in Maine and many of them are nationally recognized. It is a very tranquil place.

This wonderfully situated spot is the perfect size for a taste of culture during your beach vacation. The bulk of the collection focuses on American artists who summered at the Ogunquit art colony, but they also have revolving exhibits. We were lucky to catch the Wyeth show this summer.

This is a small regional museum, devoted to Maine artists, who founded and developed this part of coastal Maine into a vibrant art colony back in the early 20th Century. It is well-laid out, and very pleasant to walk around in (both inside and out). The art history of this part of Maine is fascinating, and includes all of the... More

Best little art museum in Maine. Love the shows, the gift shop where I get all my postcards. View from back window of the ocean is another plus.

We made a point of visiting because of the special show of Andrew Wyeth work owned by Linda Bean. It was interesting but I was expecting more after seeing exhibitions of his work elsewhere. We were unable to really view and appreciate the outside gardens and sculptures due to the incoming nor'easter. The ocean though was providing some great "sea... More

Impressive exhibits. Truly enjoyed watching students from a nearby school as they lay on the floor, drawing/sketching/interpreting what the paintings and sculptures meant to them.
