Join our Museum Docents for the following tours:

Explore the museum as you discover works in the collection with hidden meanings, social messages that are sometimes considered risky and works that provoke emotions.

Bill Lagerstrom on a “Humor beyond the Grave” tour.
This tour will be sure to make you laugh as you explore the collection from deceased artists’ perspectives.

Kathleen Smith on a “Maine Artists/Maine Landscapes” tour.
Our local environment has inspired many artists. View their mastery, learn about their techniques and background on this indoor travel trail.

Our Museum Curators will also provide introductory tours to the following exhibitions:
