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

Go to see the art with some interesting rotating exhibits. Do not miss the view and walk out of the ocean side of the museum. The outdoor sculpture, view and extensive landscaping makes it worth visiting.

Amazing gallery, small and quite doable. View from the front entrance is comparable to none. BEST stocked and most tasteful gift shop I have ever seen.

we visited this on a rainy afternoon. Situated on the outskirts of town it is a very unassuming, building in a beautiful setting wit amazing gardens. We were surprised by the eclectic collection of American Art in a small (for museums) space.. I saw my first Calder drawing. Worth the visit and the $10 to support such a fine gem... More

Take an extra 1/2 mile bike ride or drive past Perkins Cove to this lovely little gem of an art museum. The grounds are well kept and wonderful views from the back of the museum. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a group of local watercolor painters who welcomed me, and encouraged me to join them in creating my... More

This is a lovely small museum not far from Perkins cove set and set in a spectacular location. The art is of varied quality, some quite good, some clearly mediocre. The outdoor sculpture and garden is probably the best part. Worth a visit for sure.
