The museum itself is small but the exhibits are well hung and interesting. They have good travelling shows thru out the season. It is nice that they have expanded their season to May 1-end of October. The gardens with outdoor sculptures are not to be missed. The plantings are lovely, but the view is spectacular. Since Ogunquit is SO crowded... More

The offerings of this small place are limited due to space, but still worth seeing, especially if they have a special exhibit. But the view of the ocean behind the museum is simply spectacular. Not to be missed.

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. Go early as soon as they open or go late because... More

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.
