With nearly 8,000 works of art, the museum has built an important collection that specializes in American and contemporary art with additional, select collections of Chinese antiquities, European paintings, and works on paper. With the addition of the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion in 2013, the museum is now the largest art museum in the state of Maine. The museum is open to the public and is free of charge.
