Farnsworth Art Museum reviews
If you can find a place to park downtown this is the one place to see. For some reason there are a lot of streets blocked off and many fewer parking spaces than a few years ago. Almost NO HANDICAPPED.... more »
I was thrilled to learn about the women artists who created beautiful covers for books in the early 20th century. The gift shop has a book on sale for this exhibit. more »
This museum is highly recommended to be visited. There is a great selection of the artworks dedicated to Maine. The stuff is very friendly and helpful.
This art gallery with a focus on the area, the Wyeths, and regional art is the place for Olsen House tickets which was our initial intent. The gallery is kid friendly and filled with great art. The village of Rockland is a great place to stay.
