Its a great way to spend the day, feeding the soul with some exquisite art. I would definetly advise to not miss this experience if you are in town. The collection at the church building were my favourite.

What a gem to find right here in Rockland. Currently, they are showing artwork from the various family member of Andrew Wyeth. Very educational and a great art exhibition.

This museum was impressive and had a very large & educational Wyeth collection. I especially liked the NC Wyeth Poems of American Patriotism exhibit; don’t miss it in the separate old church building. Definitely worth a visit to this museum!

In the scenic town of Rockland is a great art museum which houses some wonderful works of the Wyeths along with numerous other exhibits. If you are nearby, this is a must see.

This gem of a museum has works by N.C, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth as well as other artists. The N.C. Wyeth original works used for illustrating books are amazing. There is even an Andy Warhol drawing of Jamie Wyeth. Don't miss this centrally located museum....More
