Just down the street, the Farnsworth has 20,000 feet of gallery space filled with a nationally recognized collection of art. It houses the largest Wyeth collection in the country as well as many more of America’s greatest artists.
Be sure to visit the other locations, including the Wyeth home site in Cushing…a nice drive and short day-trip down the Cushing Peninsula.

Outstanding collection of Wyeth family paintings and works by other artists who have lived in Maine. Nice museum gift shop.

The Farnsworth Art Museum offers an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy a comprehensive collection of American art related to Maine.
Lucy Copeland Farnsworth, last surviving member of her family and the daughter of a successful Rockland lime merchant who founded the local water company, instructed in her will that a building she owned on Main Street “be put into condition to serve as an art gallery,” which along with a library and the mid-Victorian house she grew up in were to be open to the public and named after her father. The task of creating and operating the museum was assigned by her trustee, the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Company, to Robert Peabody Bellows, a Harvard graduate and a partner in the Boston architectural firm of Aldrich and Bellows.

The kind of museum you would expect in a large city is at the heart of this picturesque New England town, Rockland, and houses an enormous collection of the Wyeth family works, many painted within sight of your home away, in addition to other artists like Winslow Homer, Eastman Johnson, George Bellows and others.

Excellent museum in downtown Rockland. Worth a visit to one of Maine's most celebrated family of artists.

About a half an hour up the road in Rockland is the famous Farnsworth, with Maine history and the famous works of the Wyeth family.
