Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum

Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum

The one museum on this list not exclusively dedicated to art, this modest exhibit space at Bowdoin College features fascinating rotating exhibitions of artifacts and photos from early polar expeditions next to art from Inuit and other Arctic cultures. Ornate works in bone and tusk would be worth admission, if admission weren’t free.
