We attended a wedding at the museum - absolutely marvelous venue! Situated directly on the rocky shore of one of the most beautiful areas of Maine, the quality of the museum was surprising and a treat. When the art inside is enhanced, not embarrassed by an unparalleled view, you know you have found a special spot. Enjoy!

What a gorgeous setting on the Maine Coast! This is a gem!! If you need a diversion for an afternoon, this is the place to go. The museum is small and you can cover it easily within a couple of hours or less, ideal for those with short attention spans or tired joints or those traveling with such folks! Interesting... More

Our rental was a few steps away from this lovely little art museum. My mother was a devotee of Andrew Wyeth, so we were delighted to see the exhibit from Linda L Beans private collection here. Outstanding. The rest of the galleries are lovely, and the grounds, gardens and sculpture are wonderful. The views of the sea and rocks are... More

Nice collection of Andrew Wyeth paintings. Paintings were good but be sure and walk outside and enjoy the view from the cliffs. I loved that most of the plants were identified with markers. The setting is beautiful and the sculptures in the garden are unique. Enjoy!

Andrew Wyeth exhibit is there. The exhibit owned by Linda L. Bean. The grounds of the museum are just -both flower gardens and sculpture garden are magnificent.

This unassuming modern-ish building has a glass door where you can see the sea beyond. This is gem often neglected by most, including myself for many years. Featuring paintings from early 20th local artist's century-- and in total a rather small collection. The true beauty is in the setting itself. The expansive side lawn has mature plantings, some whimsical sculptures.... More

This was a really nice little art museum with a beautiful view and well manicured grounds. We enjoyed looking at the Wyeth art collection. The staff was friendly and nice. The admission fee was a bit much for what the museum is, but hey, it is a non-profit so it is a good cause.

The museum is in walking distance from most parts of town and is situated right on the beautiful rugged coastline. It was a reasonable $10 to enter and when we were there there was a spectacular Andrew Wyeth exhibit. Docent Anna Christina gave us a fine introduction to the museum.

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
