Very beautiful collection inspiring in the tremendous artistry of its painters. Enjoyed the historical explanations as well. Sorry we missed the Olson House (closed for the season).

Fantastic museum. If you love the Wyeths, this is the place for you. In addition to an extensive Wyeth collection, the museum has an outstanding permanent collection. Check their website for special exhibitions.

Just a fabulous museum. We did not know it existed until looking at the cruise brochure on things to do in Rockland. Walked around town on a sunny day and what a great find. Do not miss. Period.

Nice take for local art. Famous and otherwise. Intimate and enjoyable given Maine's wonderful and unique old New England sensibility.

Small museum with a wonderful collection in several buildings. The Wyeth collection is top-notch, and the former church building in which there are many Wyeths shown is beautiful architecturally. Lots of artists shown who have connections to Maine. It is a rich place to visit.

I am not by nature an art lover but the Wyeth exhibition proved to be well worth the visit, even if they don't have the most famous painting there!

Thank you for the kind review. We're glad you enjoyed the exhibition! The painting you are referencing is most probably Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World, which resides at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Certainly worth a visit if you get a chance!

The Farnsworth is well known by Wyeth lovers, and we went down there to see a special N.C. Wyeth show before it left. What we did not know, however, is how much else the Farnsworth has, and what an accessible space it is. We were...More
