“Wyeths and Prendergasts, Marin and Many Others!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a wonderful museum filled with Wyeths and other Maine-linked artists including an excellent contemporary artist show in upstairs gallery and for contrast, in the basement gallery, some "naive" landscapes by a 19th century painter/printer.

“A treasure”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a fabulous museum in a small, walkable town. The main museum's offerings are close by, including the Farnsworth Home and Wyeth Center. Marvelous Wyeth generations of art, marine paintings, as well as more modern offerings. It's also possible to view the Olsen House, with a short drive to Cushing.

“Fantastic Museum!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

My husband and I visited the museum on a rainy day... I would return there even if the weather were perfect! The N.C. Wyeth art was amazing. I didn't even realize that he illustrated the classics. What talent the entire family has, from N.C. to Andrew to Jamie. The

“Wonderful variety”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is a hidden jewel that is well worth your time and dollars to visit. The entire complex needs to be seen. Besides a superb quantity of Wyeth family art, there are many renowned artists on display. The location is excellent for seeing the rest of Rockland without having to move your car.
