If you're in Rockport, don't miss this fantastic museum. To say it is local artists on display doesn't do it justice. Many of the artists are internationally acclaimed and have studios in other places but also have a connection to Rockport. All media are represented...More

This really is a museum in quality and presentation. You might suspect it's just a way to sell local art, but the quality puts it above many of the nearby galleries. They have juried shows, a permanent display, and a small gift shop. The staff...More

Boutique arty feel to this entire town and clearly hums during the summer months. Numerous art galleries and shops with the odd eatery thrown in. Worth a visit and take the coastal road
