This is a special tour through the Portland Museum of Art, as the general public is not allowed to visit the studio. A private van takes you to Prout's Neck in Scarborough and back to the museum. We used our ticket to visit the museum exhibitions before the 2pm tour and also had lunch in the museum cafe. It was... More

One of my reasons for traveling to Maine was to see the rugged coast that has been so beautifully captured in the paintings of Winslow Homer. The visit to his studio was especially meaningful when we left the studio and walked to the beach, or as near as possible. Unlike the sandy, gently sloping dunes of the southern Atlantic beaches,...

The Portland art museum has an extraordinary collection and is well worth visiting many times. But the chance to have an intimate view of this important artists inspiration is well worth it. We ha d spectacular weather. And the docent who led our tour was knowledgeable, personable and sensitive to the need of the group. Yes the fee is not... More

The Portland Museum of Art could hardly say no to acquiring the studio of Favorite Son Winslow Homer when given the chance and to paying for an extraordinarily expensive restoration. It owns "Weatherbeaten," displayed in Pride of Place on the second floor of the PMA, a painting of water's edge at the studio. I could hardly say no, either, to... More

I had goosebumps when I stood on the spot where Winslow Homer did so much of his amazing work. The docent-led tour from the Portland Museum of Art takes one down toward the rocky shore and around to the beautifully-restored studio. I could have lingered there for much longer than was allowed. The docent was earnest and well-informed but gave... More

The Winslow Homer Studio sits on a rocky coast with panoramic ocean vistas, and was his home and workplace for over a quarter century, until his death in 1910. Declared a National Landmark in 1966, it was purchased by the Portland Museum of Art in 2006, then laboriously restored to its original state. The dynamic weather and ever-changing ocean vistas...

Spectacular views at the home of one of America's most iconic painters. Try to stop by if you are in the Portland, Maine area. Not a tremendous amount to see but the docents present an excellent history of Winslow Homer's life. I found this venue definitely worth seeing.

Not much to see here. Yes, the waterfront where he painted and the studio is beautiful and beautifully restored but to my mind it is not worth the $50 plus dollars to go.

When visiting Portland, Maine and surroundings do make advance reservations to take a tour of the home and studio of this iconic American painter. The house/studio was recently renovated and finally opened to the public, after being in the Homer family since Winslow's death nearly 100 years ago. The tour is very enjoyable, enlightening and entertaining. You learn a lot... More

I'm a big fan of Winslow Homer's art, especially his watercolors, and a visit to his studio was a glimpse into the inner life of this very quirky man. Never married, he chose to live out his later years in an ascetic converted carriage house in this exclusive private summer colony surrounded by -- but separate from -- his family.... More
