I have taken trips to Bowdoin, Bates and Orono. Out of these three top tier schools in Maine, Bowdoin stands tall. I hope that when you visit, you take the time to enjoy the pieces of art. I'm not a big fan of art museum, but for quantity and in my opinion quality, Bowdoin beats the rest.

Small but wonderful museum. Strong eclectic permanent collection. We came for the Maurice Prendergast exhibit and were delighted to discover a small selection of Civil War prints, and an exhibit by 8 contemporary Chinese women artists.

Great museum. beautiful building. we found the show a bit much. a few beach paintings are great but this was a bit of overkill.

Excellent Prendergast exhibit and an amazing display of Assyrian reliefs that were brought to the US from Iraq in the early 1900s. Amazing detail and very impressive!
