  • What a wonderful and marvelous museum! When I vacation next summer in Northfield I will be sure to visit again. Also found out that Billings Farm Museum has reciprocity and so will take advantage of this. Everyone who goes to Maine needs to visit this captivating place Rabbi Panitz
  • We visited as we were in the area for a family event and had free entry due to a reciprocal art membership, other wise this place might be a little expensive for what it is. That said, it did have a decent and varied collection of art, with a focus on Maine and there is a lovely garden with a small sculpture park and a further gallery across the street out the back in a old church. Enough to entertain younger kids, but realise it isn't geared towards little children too. The museum store is also very good. Plenty of on street parking around the place as well.
  • Plenty of Wyeth art to gaze at. They have occasional free entry. We happened to be there for an October pumpkin festival that included free entry. The museum is worth a look.
  • Great museum, love the buildings and the way they use the place, especially the church. Lot of art from the Wyeth family, small permanent collection of other artists and nice exhibitions with lot of artwork by Roy Lichtenstein among other.
  • One of the small treasures of the art museums of Maine. And a delightful little town to set it in. Worth a stop.
