That the Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum is not ranked among the top "must-see" attractions is a shame - for those who don't know about it. The small group in the know about this hidden gem enjoy the extra elbow room whilst pondering their art! Disguised as a beach house on stilts, the museum is divided into quiet mini-galleries that...

We visited here September 8 2016 to view the artist Nathan Sawaya Lego Exhibit. We have visited here on several occasions and have always enjoyed how the exhibits are set up. This exhibit was no exemption, a very enjoyable afternoon. This exhibit also had a movie about Legos that was 90 minutes long. There is a handicap elevator to get... More

All types of Lego sculptures, both large and small were on exhibit. There was also a very interesting film about the beginning of Lego building.

Very creative displays. No charge just donations. Great time. My favorite was the red umbrella. I'm thinking of going again and taking family. The view of the ocean was fabulous.

They were having a Lego exhibit when we were there. So that was a big hit for us. If you are visiting the area, check to see what their current exhibit is. It is right at the end of the main beach area, easy to get to. Free, donations suggested.

This trip marked my family's second trip to Frank G Burroughs. Perfect place to get a break from the beach and always have family friendly exhibits during the summer months. Gallery staff are very friendly. Admission is donation based which is great in a tourist town. Nice view from the second floor sunroom area. Lego exhibit was nice for children... More
