  • I loved strolling through this museum. This is a gem of a museum dedicated to the Wyeth family of artists. It is a wonderful collection. Plan on 2--3 hours.

  • A great midcoast institution -- Maine punches above its weight, art wise and while the Farnsworth leans a little legacy / traditional, there's a lot to say there. A great building right in the middle of a great town. Visit the Wyeth collection in the adjacent church for sure.
  • The museum was fantastic! The service and the security guards very friendly and the art was beautiful. If you're an artist, I recommend it
