The Ogunquit Museum of American Art is a beautiful building on a large, beautifully maintained site. In season, glorious flowers abound, beginning right at the entrance and continuing throughout the property. In fact, behind the museum there are several splendidly designed garden areas. The setting...More

Small but exquisite. The building constructed in the 1960's sits low and easy on the site next to Narrow Cove. Large windows open to the coast and sea views. The sculpure garden and physical setting is worth the trip

This museum is SO interesting. It's very small but home to some great art and you can roam around the oceanfront grounds to enjoy sculptures and beautiful views.

Enjoyed seeing the lovely garden (even in the rain) inside there was an exhibit of Allison Rector's paintings which we enjoyed as well as sculpture by local artists. It is a small museum.

This is a lovely small museum with an equally lovely sculpture garden overlooking the ocean. Some art is from their permanent collection, while other pieces are on loan. We saw things from the early twentieth century to some pieces created this year. All if it...More
