A nice place to visit and take in the local talent. Maine has a lot to offer and this is just a hint.

Worth visiting, but not overly impressive. Limited exhibition. Good representation of Maine and regional art.

We didn't have much time to spend here, and though we were rushed, I am so glad we toured all through the exhibits. I especially loved the Wyeth art which I had seen displayed in Delaware, but will always view it as many times as I get the chance. I think the folks who run this museum are doing a... More
