Do make time for this small but fine museum when you are in Ogunquit. There is a Wyeth exhibition on at present and we learned a good deal about the rise of the artists' colony around Ogunquit in the last 19th century, thanks to the docents and to various aspects of the permanent collection. The grounds are very nice -... More

I always love this place. Lovely art selection, magnificent view, and great outdoor sculptures. Wish they would make it handicapped accessible.

This museum had quite a variety of art work from a beautifully written journal with photos to some Wyeths to a mix of modern sculpture. The staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds were inviting with waterlilies and gorgeous landscaping plus a sculpture garden that invited the viewer to use his or her imagination. I loved the gardens as much... More

The grounds and exhibits are lovely. Requires transportation as it is a bit far from town. The Andrew Wyeth exhibit was fantastic.

Great displays of great artists. Wished they had more variety and space to display more. The cost to get in isn't justified by what you get to see. Still overall a place to visit every now and again, unless they have an artistisan you haven't seen.

We had been several years ago. I thought the price was very steep for a small museum - we spent about an hour looking at the... More

We were especially interested in the exhibits and the grounds with mostly humorous sculptures all set by an awesome view of the water. I got absorbed in reading all about Henry Strater while sitting in the room featuring his work. The Wyeth exhibit was unexpected.
