Owner description: Celebrating Maine's Role in American Art, the Farnsworth Art Museum offers a nationally recognized collection of works from many of America's greatest artists. With 20,000 square feet of gallery space and over 15,000 works in the collection, there is always something new on view at the Farnsworth. The museum has one of the largest collections of works by sculptor Louise Nevelson. Its Wyeth Center features works of Andrew, N.C. and Jamie Wyeth. The Farnsworth's library is also housed in its Rockland, ME, campus. Two historic buildings, the Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House, and Julia's Gallery for Young Artists complete the museum complex.

What a jewel!
If you are a fan of the Wyeths, this is a must see. A great collection and several films you can watch that I found very educational.

But there were so many other enjoyable things to see while I was there, including a very relaxing sculpture garden and several other great exhibits.
It is a very nice facility and they also have a nice store with a nice selection of things that will remind you of your pleasant visit.

If you like the Wyeths and New England art, you will love this museum. And if you want an extra treat, visit the Rockland Historical Society across from the library where Rusty will answer any and all questions about the history of Rockland and environs with his Down East story telling anecdotes.

The staff was friendly, and the art? Forget about it! The Wyeths are superb.
