First time seeing John Haberle's trompe l'oeil paintings and well color me impressed. Overall a great museum.
Best Museum (Best of Portland '15, Portland Phoenix) "Maine's oldest art institution … more than 18,000 objects … dating from the 18th century to the present"
A small gem of a museum. Some wonderful new England paintings to ponder.
The original part of the house was full of amazing craftsmanship try and do something like that today.
Great little art museum in a small city.
Come early! We love this place.
Skip the Friday crowds and go on Third Thursdays for cocktails and art
Many of the classic american sculptures are well lit and easy to photograph here.
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
Nice collection, the Winslow Homer room is more about artifacts. Only one small canvas on display.
Free Friday evenings 5-9pm!
The gift shop has gorgeous jewelry from local artists
First Friday of every month check out the Art Walk outside in the plaza!
Great museum. Nice place to be on a rainy day. Good selection of art.
Tried to visit on Monday Dec.31 and they were closed. Traveled from VT. To see W. Homer exhibit. Tip: Call aread -don't trust website hours.
Maine Sublime: Frederic Edwin Church’s Landscapes of Mount Desert and Mount Katahdin
Art Museum, good stuff!
Regardless of admission price, this is an excellent collection. Do not miss the view of 'Rising Cairn' from the _third_ floor staircase.
WARNING! They didn't accept the $2 discount check-in special as advertised. Bummer.
Podcasts are available online and detail current exhibitions! They can be found on the Museum's website (http://www.portlandmuseum.org/events/podcasts.shtml).
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
Beautiful collection of glass in the lower level
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!
