My husband and I visited the Farnsworth during a stop in Rockland. The town itself is lovely and full of charm. We spent a couple of hours at the art museum and enjoyed every moment. Highly recommend!

I suggest a visit to the Wyeth center, and the exhibits in the galleries. Even a 25 minute viewing is enjoyable, calming and self- improving! The gift shop is a gem.

The museum concentrates on the Wyeths, including a special exhibit on historical pictures of N.C. Wyeth. Their other location is Brandywine PA, near us, so we were delighted with this opportunity to see more Wyeths. Also a sculptures from An Weiwei's Zodiac, & quilts. Easy...More

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).

Not a fan of Jamie Wyeth and not terribly familiar with N.C. Wyeth before arriving here, I learned a lot about both as well as seeing some terrific watercolors by Andrew Wyeth. A definite must-stop place to go in Mid-Coastal Maine. Two things that struck...More

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.
