Quick jaunt through American art

Quick stop on the American Art tour. It is worth it to walk the grounds and attempt a climb in the rocks over looking the Cove entrance.

The setting, the garden, the building, the artwork........all beautiful. My husband and I enjoyed this place so much. The ocean view upon entering the museum is amazing, and then stepping out the back door onto the lawn and immersing yourself in the beauty of the area, just stunning. This place is too good to miss.

This small art museum is, indeed, a gem and makes for a welcome break from the sun, surf, and sand -- or a rainy day option. But best to come on a nice summery day, for the views outside the museum are gorgeous, with a lovely little cove and beautifully kept gardens. (It is a pity, but understandable, that no... More

This art museum, although small, is worth the visit for art lovers. The gallery docent was very welcoming and lent background info on Jamie Wyeth. The grounds and sculpture garden provide a peaceful respite from the ordinary tourist sites. The museum is beautifully situated on the water. It was nice to learn a little about Ogunquit's arts history.

Despite a lovely museum and wonderful art exhibits, outdoor sculptures and beautiful gardens, there is a lovely beach behind the gallery. Parking is only during museum hours 10-5. It is a rocky beach and you'll have to climb down some rock formations, but a lovely view and surrounded by the beauty of nature. Back when this gallery was an art... More

You would have to know about this museum. Its location is tucked in a local neighborhood around the corner from Perkins Cove. The museum had a special showing of Jamie Wyeth . Senior discount was applicable ( cost $9.00). Great to visit on a rainy day in Maine. Very well laid out. There were plenty of volunteers within the museum... More

If you are an art lover and need to find a quiet inside activity on a rainy day you might enjoy spending an hour at this small museum. The $10 admission is steep for what is displayed. The grounds are beautifully kept and the museum looks out onto the ocean.

Just a brisk walk from the heart of the village - lies this little gem of an art museum. Even though I've been several times over the years I always feel inspired by the new exhibits and visiting the gardens by the sea. My favorites are the out door sculptures by Bernard Langois.

We visited this museum while away on a short weekend trip to Ogunquit. We were driving by, saw it - turned around, and visited - so glad we did! The location where this museum is located is breathtaking. The artwork on display was from many local artists, either people that lived there currently, or spent their childhood there. It is...
