  • Excellent museum! Beautiful grounds, sculpture garden and siting. Not to be missed.
  • The Ogunquit Museum is one of the great small museums in the US Northeast, and is a beautiful showcase of the long, rich tradition of significant 19th and 20th century artists who've made the Maine region home or placed it at the center of their work. My wife and I make a visit (or two) a high priority when we visit Ogunquit in the summer, and never fail to come away grateful for the experience. And that's to say nothing of the beautiful setting and view. The shortcomings of a volunteer museum docent or a volunteer desk attendant on a given day can't be written off, but at the same time, the museum experience itself should not be condemned because of that. Otherwise you'd have a heckuva time finding a museum of any stature anywhere in the western world that hits the perfect mark 75% of the time. And if someone's four-year old can do the equivalent of half of it, there's always the other half to enjoy and learn from.
  • Wonderful varied art in a beautiful setting
  • Cool place for everyone
  • Half of it my 4-year old can do. I don't care about the artist expressing themselves through their phony "art"... just give me excellence, not crap that passes as art.
