What is the Maine Art Museum Trail?


What is the Maine Art Museum Trail?  Starting at the Captain Lord Mansion, you may travel from our romantic Maine Coast bed & breakfast to visit some terrific art exhibits and art museums on the Maine Art Museum Trail.  The Maine Art Museum Trail consists of 7 different museums showcasing 53,000 works of art along a 167 miles of scenic Maine byways!  Here is a list of those museums, a brief description of their current exhibit as well as their show dates.  Bev and I hope to see a couple of these exhibits during the summer season.  Also, while you are in Kennebunkport, you may enjoy seeing the extensive art collection to be found here at the Captain Lord Mansion, some of which is for sale.
