  • My husband and I recently toured the museum and gardens. It has always been closed in the past when we were in Ogunquit. Not only were the exhibits quite interesting, we learned about the history...  more »
  • A lovely place to spend a morning. The collection is interesting and the setting is beautiful. Their safety precautions are excellent and it’s a good choice for a socially distant activity!  more »
  • This is a unique place to experience Art. We stopped here for my consumer to see some amazing art. And he was not disappointed by no means. The curator was kind out going and very professional. She had a wealth of information and knowledge of each piece of art which was displayed though out the gallery. A time to really appreciate great art. Please take your family, loved one or date.
  • Stumbled upon this gem quite unexpectedly while vacationing in Maine. Four galleries of distinctly unique paintings and sculpture. The works of the 2 currently featured artists spoke to me. The grounds around the museum showcased several beautiful sculptures, each ensconced in its own lovely garden, while still leading you on to the next one, all culminating in a view of the ocean at the back of the museum. We met a wonderful docent who shared insights on the artists and their works. Do not miss this treasure.
