It has been such a pleasure operating in Ogunquit's Narrow Cove for over 60 years. We at the OMAA are so glad that you stopped by- and hope you will visit us again!

Having driven by this little gem when coming into Ogunquit, we never really noticed it before. Fellow guests at the place where we were staying suggested that we visit, so we did, on what was the last day this museum was open for this year....More

Good permanent collection and always interesting special exhibits. Grounds are spectacular as are views out back. A relaxing peaceful enriching experience.

Very small museum. Not many rooms. Not many things to see. Something to do for about a half hour to 45 minutes, but it is not going to set your culture craving aside.

This museum perches on the shoreline, with lovely views of the ocean from the sculpture garden outside. Interesting history of the art community in the area, and a pleasant way to pass an hour or two.

The museum was interesting but it was the grounds and ocean views that are worth the stop. However there is an admission fee that i believe was not worth the money
