16 Museum St., Rockland, ME 04841, United States

Rockland, Maine, may not be thought of as the art capital of the world, but this nationally recognized museum is certainly no slouch. The collection features more than 10,000 works, most by American artists with ties to the state of Maine. In addition to holding a vast collection of pieces by 19th century sculptor Louise Nevelson, the museum complex also includes the Wyeth Center, which showcases the talents of three generations of Wyeths—N.C., Andrew, and James—whose paintings were greatly influenced by the people and places they encountered in Maine.
