This is a fine - and free! - museum on the Colby College campus. We were fortunate to be there during a wonderful Marsden Hartley exhibit that featured his Maine-oriented paintings (we'd seen a more broad exhibit previously.) Loved the exhibit. Loved the student guides.

This is a wonderful little art museum and it is free. The permanent collection includes works by Sergant, Whistler, Remington, Winslow Homer, Frederic Church and others. We spent about an hour, but you could spend two depending on how much time you like art museums.

This is a first rate art museum that is in a very unlikely location - it's on a college campus of a small college in a small town in Maine. The collection is worthy of a big city. Moreover, it's free. The museum building itself...More

A bit of a drive but well worth! Beautiful building, great permanent collection, and wonderful Marsden Hartley exhibit. Great reception. No cost. Plenty of parking.

The collection is pretty large and interesting for a small college. Covers many periods of art. The building showcases the art very well. There is a separate wing with the works of Alex Katz, an artist I don't care for, but still interesting to see...More

A very well chosen collection of American artists, both old and new (an entire wing devoted to Alex Katz). Sargent, Stuart, Homer, Bellows, Church, Remington, etc. And it's free. What's not to like.

I thoroughly enjoyed Katz's paintings and always have. I even went to see them in Boston at the MFA. I also enjoyed the Colby Art Museum.
