Outstanding - find this if you love a great view and frankly the art is exceptional. We are artist so this resonated.

The view out the windows to the beachfront (free) is as nice as the very small museum - which was lovely.. just small (especially after the Portland Museum of Art the day prior).

Beautiful grounds, lovely gardens, and some interesting exhibits. I especially liked Boundaries. I was disappointed the digital exhibit wasn't operational, however, which was the reason I came.

I'd really appreciate any thoughts on the below itinerary: Thursday (driving from NY and arriving in Maine at lunch time). -Nubble Light -Marginal Way Friday -Ogunquit Beach -First Chance Scenic...More
