“Great day of sun and hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

This island is an artist paradise. We had received recommendations from friends that this is a must trip while in the Damariscotta area. We took te early boat out of new harbor ( Hardy Boat Tours). The service was excellent while aboard for the trip out and return. While on the island, we visited a few artist shops that were open and did some hiking around the island. We had a blast. The weather was a little cool on the boat ride,but once on the island, the sun came out and the hiking was excellent. If in the area, this trip is a must. The boat captain even let children drive the boat ( they were having a blast)

“A slice of painting history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

The greats of Modern American Art came to Monhegan, many of them, before they were famous, and most of those are represented in the museum, in a small, eclectic, and delightful collection.

“Monhegan Museum -- Tiny Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

We loved the tiny Monhegan Museum at the lighthouse. The view of the village and the ocean is superb, and the museum well-maintained and remarkably comprehensive -- overview of early Native American history, fishing, painting culture etc. The docent was friendly and answered all of our questions.
