I loved visiting this fantastic museum on a recent trip to Maine. If you’re a fan of American art, this is a “must see” museum. And Rockland is a great city to visit. Make sure you set aside 2 hours to quickly tour this museum.

While this museum is small, they had an incredible Wyeth retrospective, which was worth admission. The grounds are historic, nice gift shop. Take a stroll through the garden while there.

Wyeth 100 is a fantastic exhibit. This is my first visit to Maine so I learned a lot about the Wyeth family and how much the artwork reflects Maine. Highly recommend a visit to the art museum.
