Such a lovely and bite-sized museum. We had foreign friends who really enjoyed the "local" flavor, both US art and Maine specifically. The current exhibit with A Wyeth drawings was a revelation. Easy, well-kept up, and a Must stop for travelers.

What a find. What a painter. As a pretty much art No-Nothing I soaked up the whole experience. From his paintings to the incredible preparatory drawings to a memorable tour of the Olson House. Will never look at " Christina's World" the same again.

The right size museum. Allow 1.5-2 hours. And right in town with enough parking on Sunday morning. No admission charge if you have ROAM [via membership in your local art museum.]
