  • My husband & I enjoy visiting this museum & viewing the Wyeth paintings, Andrew, N.C. & Jamie. Be sure to go into the renovated Methodist Church across the street. The additional Wyeth paintings...

  • Worth it but don't expect all their collection to be on display. I went there specifically to see Katz's portrait of Rudy Burckhardt and was disappointed. The Porters more than made up for it.
  • Impressive curation of art representing regional and internationally-renowned artists. There are two buildings and 6 floors, so we did not get to see everything, but our group looks at art thoughtfully (and rather slowly), so it is possible to see it all in a day (if you’re efficient). Guests wear an entrance sticker and can exit to have lunch (many Rockland downtown area eateries in close walking distance) before returning to the museum. I was surprised by the extensive collection of quality art.
  • Such a great time at this museum, it has something for every art lover. The exhibits are well presented and the space was cool and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The Leonard Baskin exhibit alone is worth the price of admission.
  • A very impressive collection of art and sculpture with a focus on New England Artists. Courteous and knowledgeable staff make the experience informative and enlightening. The Olson House tour is amazing, even just visiting the exterior of the property during the current renovations is worth the trip.
  • Great museum, but if you’re in the off-season be sure to check how much of it is open; get your discount if half of it is under renovations. The exhibits are all interesting, and the Weiwei installation is here most of 2018 - a must see. The Maine art is well represented. There are exhibits showing Wyeth’s studies and the finished product, letting you see him work through the creative process and see all of the detail he planned.
