Quiet and impressive

Beautiful landscape of the ocean and great botanical gardens (with labels of plant names!). Small but very impressive museum of American art.

The museum is certainly worth a visit. It has a good array of art, although there are a couple of painters who have many pieces shown, perhaps more than there contributions merit. So a bit broader inventory would be a plus The staff was very pleasant and the grounds, with wonderful planting and waterfront views, was worth the price of... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find a museum that overlooks the water, and had outdoor sculpture in addition to a fine art collection indoors. Couldn't imagine that there would be a roomful of Homer Winslow Civil War original works. They even have docents that will tell you about the origins of the museum and some of the artwork. Well worth... More

My friend Alex and I came here for each our first time recently. Admission for adults is $10.00, though as employees of another museum we were granted complimentary admission with our work badges, which was very generous of them. Free parking is available on the property, which is significant in size, especially given how built up the area has become... More

My Aunt brought us here on an overcast day. It was small but a delight to go through each room and walk the grounds. Right on the ocean with spectacular views inside and out.

A stop along the trolley route would have been an extra star, but still worth the trip. The actual newspaper clippings from the civil war times were a terrific surprise. Take ur time & read the captions for the paintings. The pallets take u back in time. A warm welcome @ front desk & the grounds r breath taking. Free... More

The Museum of American Art has an eclectic permanent collection and lovely well lit rooms for its changing exhibits. It is a small space that nicely compliments the artwork. Do NOT forget to tour their gardens. The outdoor sculptures are stunning and the garden plantings are beautiful. Such a variety of plants and of course it has a lovely view... More
