  • This is a beautiful museum planted on the edge of the sea with gorgeous gardens and fascinating sculptures in the garden. One room inside is devoted to changing exhibits. One room has an exhibit on Hemingway and other authors of the period. The art is generally local but of high quality. You can park there, but you can also follow the trail that leads from downtown Ogunquit that offers wonderful views of the sea. The trail is around a mile I think.
  • A true gem. Received passes from a friend of the family this gear. After a number of summers in Maine where we flew by on Shore Road we stopped to visit. The exhibits we're gripping. Powerful photographs and narratives documenting struggles of the recent and not so recent tlmes. The grounds were meticulously maintained and the views outstanding. Will be sure to return on our next visit.
