This our second year staying on Monhegan, and on our last day on the island, decided to visit the museum. I was very impressed by the wide range of artifacts from the island's history that are on display. I could easily have spent over an hour learning about the island, and role of a lighthouse keeper.

The art museum is across the lawn, and expertly curated. They have a wide range of works on paper and canvas, and brings the artist community of Monhegan alive.
