“Beautiful Little Museum”

This is a fabulous little Museum with a lovely collection and surprisingly beautiful grounds over looking the sea - don't miss it when you're in Ogunquit, it's a hidden treasure if ever there was one!

“Beautiful spot for Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We were pleasantly surprised at the art in the museum. The location of the museum is breath taking- right on the ocean- a real hidden gem! I wish the museum was open past October as I would love to go in the winter!

“Worth driving beyond Perkins Cove on Shore Road”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

Sitting directly on the bold open Atlantic Ocean, you will discover one of of Maine's best kept secrets for American art. My first visit included a memorable showing of Bernard Langlois's unique wood sculptures that I remember seeing all over Bernard's yard in Cushing, Maine as a kid growing up. Every visit to this museum proves to be a worthwhile cultural experience to say nothing of the incredible wide ocean view and the wonderful staff that operate this beautiful museum. Drive beyond the Cove and discover what many miss out on. You'll be glad you did.
