Oh my goodness. Painting and sculpture inside and out, gardens and views. Helpful staff and gift shop with bargains. You could spend a day there.

Down Shore drive, it has free parking and is on the water. Great views on the walls and out the windows. Low cost. Great art. Stop in. You will be glad you did. We loved it.

This small museum has a small, interesting collection of art, well worth a look. But the real show is the location. Behind the museum is a lovely garden and a spectacular view of cllffs and the sea, as well as Perkins Cove to the north.

Walking distance from Perkins Cove this little museum had a variety of art pieces and styles. The staff was friendly and informative. The grounds were superbly maintained with statues, sculptures and gardens along with breathtaking views of the ocean and the channel entrance to Perkins Cove. A good way to spend a couple of hours viewing the talents that called the area home.

Liked the shows they have and the museum is on our list to see every year.The view of the water and the flowers are spectacular from the large windows in the main room.We go for a walk outside to the water and it is so peaceful to sit on one of the benches.
