Off the Beaten Path Gem is an overused phrase, but DEFINITELY APPLIES HERE!

Stayed overnight in Rockland and in trying to decide what to do on a cool autumn Sunday morning discovered this museum opened at 10:00am! For the adult entry fee of $15, we enjoyed about an hour wandering through this small art collection. We are not art lovers or particularly educated in art so we appreciated the some of the history and pieces that detailed NC Wyeth versus Andrew Wyeth versus Jaime Wyeth. Truly the jewel of this museum is the Wyeth collections but there are other rooms with a variety of genre and there is a changing collection (golden Chinese zodiac masks while we were there). Not being a true art lover, I appreciate small museums where I can focus and not be overwhelmed! This museum is definitely worth a visit while in the area.

What a find. What a painter. As a pretty much art No-Nothing I soaked up the whole exhibit and 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.

Love to visit to see what is new.
The wealth of Wyeth art and the presentation is instructional and inspiring.

We are glad we stopped in to view this art museum. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the collections especially N.C. Wyeth. Easy to locate this museum. We also were able to easily park the car.

We enjoyed this small museum in Rockland with its focus on Maine and Maine artists, featuring three generations of Wyeths and their artists friends. This museum is a North American reciprocal museum so if you belong to a member museum in your hometown, bring your membership card and you can get in free and save the $15 admission fee!
