We spent a few hours at the Museum and were impressed by the paintings, the special exhibit there of Civil War drawings by Winslow Homer, and the sounding gardens that overlook Narrows Cove. It is a great place to see interesting paintings, lovely sculptures and great outdoor scenery.

I love this museum. Having met Henry Strater decades ago I was able to see what this little treasure had amassed over the years. The setting makes this sight one not to miss.

A good way to spend an hour. We went on a day when it was pouring with rain. We didn't go to the garden to see the sculptures but would visit again on a better day. Nice gift shop.

Passed by the museum on Rt 1A in Ogunquit - turned around and went in. Very glad we did - we were impressed with the museum, its display of civil war art, and its permanent collection (which I assume is on permanent display). The museum is not large, however we've found that these small museums offer art from artists you... More

This was a place we had planned to go to, but had no idea how much we woudl enjoy it. The grounds are perfectly wonderful, and the views from the museum as well as from the grounds are unbelievable. Beautiful sculptures outside as well, so it would be a disservice to go on a cloudy/foggy day. Do not save this... More

Excellent small museum--is a perfect one to introduce children to art. The current small exhibition by Alfred Chadbourn worth a visit. The setting is picture perfect and the outside art and gardens worthy of a stroll.

The grounds are so beautiful that you will want to stroll around so don't just think of this museum as a rainy day excursion. The architecture of the building and its vistas are a work of art by themselves. As for the art....they have some works by Maine artists as well as exhibits that change seasonally. Even if you're not... More

Great little museum with some great exhibits and often some unusual exhibits. Beautiful grounds and an amazing view out the back on the yard. If you are in the area it is worth the trip. I have been a few times and always something new to see.

Missed the beach, but really enjoyed the museum. We went through in about an hour. They have some nice works by Maine artists, and nice gardens.
