    Love that there is a new wing & old wing & a house from the 1800's with beautiful wallpaper & carpet. It's not too big of a museum so you can see everything without feeling overwhelmed 🖼

    The locally stocked gift shop and café are as impressive as the collections. Visit on a Friday night for free admission and share the experience with your Trust Network: http://bit.ly/1c3Hiig

    Portland is known for Arts, Crafts, Theater, and Creativity. Tourists come here, but so do Artists' Colonies of varied types. Old Port Festival held in Spring, Sidewalk Art Festival in the Fall.

    Great museum with new exhibits and a fantastic permanent collection. Free admission on Fridays is a nice perk, too. Make sure to check out the local galleries along Congress Street and in the Old Port

    This may seem like a small museum but when I went, they were displaying an incredible collection of works on paper. The quick and free docent tour was especially helpful.

    Regardless of admission price, this is an excellent collection. Do not miss the view of 'Rising Cairn' from the _third_ floor staircase.

    Nice collection, the Winslow Homer room is more about artifacts. Only one small canvas on display.

    The permanent collection is awesome for such a small city/museum, and the traveling exhibits are of excellent quality. Their cafe is minimally chic and a great bargain!
