The exhibits are always wonderful and change frequently, making it fun for us to keep returning. And the staff is always friendly and helpful. Don't go to Rockport without stopping in.

Nice place with beautiful artwork both inside and out. Paintings, sculptures, wall art were all awesome to see. There is even a gift shop. There were some children workshop classes going on and it sounded as if they were having a blast.

Attended the annual art festival and it was second to none. Would definitely return to Rockport just for the art show.

Really good local artists. A small museum, but worth the visit. The gift shop has better than average souvenirs of a nautical nature.

There were a lot of pieces of local art for sale and the prices were reasonable. Paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery and even some woven items.

They change out regularly, and there are huge gorgeous pieces as well as small matted prints. Tiny gift shop but well-stocked with a wide range of pricing. Lovely sculpture garden out back, and centrally located to many other attractions.

Rocking chairs on front porch, air conditioned inside, very open gallery; art related gift items along with some other items which I presume are from local artists. They also provide classes.
