Owner description: Celebrating Maine's Role in American Art, the Farnsworth Art Museum offers a nationally recognized collection of works from many of America's greatest artists. With 20,000 square feet of gallery space and over 15,000 works in the collection, there is always something new on view at the Farnsworth. The museum has one of the largest collections of works by sculptor Louise Nevelson. Its Wyeth Center features works of Andrew, N.C. and Jamie Wyeth. The Farnsworth's library is also housed in its Rockland, ME, campus. Two historic buildings, the Farnsworth Homestead and the Olson House, and Julia's Gallery for Young Artists complete the museum complex.

the Farnsworth is always a worthwhile stop. This trip was no different. The Admissions person was wonderfully helpful and friendly and as always the exhibits were breathtaking.

We love the work of the Wyeths and there is always something there representing them. The new wings offer interesting and changing exhibits.

I enjoy going to the Farnsworth. It is a great place to go on a rainy or cold day. the new England art collection is unsurpassed, and the Wyeths are incredible. It is a must see in the Rockland area if you are staying a week or more.
