  • This museum is highly recommended to be visited. There is a great selection of the artworks dedicated to Maine. The stuff is very friendly and helpful.
  • This art gallery with a focus on the area, the Wyeths, and regional art is the place for Olsen House tickets which was our initial intent. The gallery is kid friendly and filled with great art. The village of Rockland is a great place to stay.
