Bowdoin College Museum of Art

Midcoast Maine

Set in a 19th-century building with a dramatic glass entrance pavilion, this campus art museum is small but impressive. The 20,000-piece collection is particularly strong in the works of 19th- and 20th-century European and American painters, including Mary Cassatt, Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer and Rockwell Kent. Look out for some surprising antiquities, too.
