There are several full length portraits done by John Brewster, a deaf itinerant painter who worked in the mid 1800s. Magnificent! The museum is very small but it has some very wonderful items in its collection. There is a huge set of Spode grey/brown transferware to die for.

This place is filled with so much information for its size! Bonus, the big gallery switches out exhibits every 8 months so there is always something new.

On a rainy day, we were at the Saco Library when the librarian suggested that we stop by the museum next door.

For a small museum, the Saco Museum has a lot to offer. The special exhibits are unique and well-displayed, and the permanent exhibits are interesting. The museum shop offers old and new books, as well as unique gift items.

Wow - Stumbled upon an AMAZING special show of scores of samplers made by Maine schoolgirls, assembled from other museums and private collectors. It closes early March, so hustle to Saco, pronto, if you love needlework. Or order the catalog, which is thick and fabulous and juicy......

If you enjoy learning about the region you are living in or visiting, the Saco Museum is an excellent place to visit. It is convenient, right on route 1, small enough to enjoy without becoming overwhelmed, and a schedule of events that allows many returns.

This is a nice, small museum with artifacts and history of the area. It has a small entry fee,but had 3 floors of nicely displayed points and people of interest. The staff was very kind and helpful with answering questions and we could browse at our leisure. We were given a pamphlet that had maps of all 3 floors and... More
