Smack dab in the heart of downtown Portland is where you’ll find the Portland Museum of Art. It was founded in 1882 and is Maine’s oldest art museum. The PMA is home to more than 18,000 objects from the 18th century to present and the collection includes works by Winslow Homer, Marsden Hartley, Rockwell Kent, Louise Nevelson and Andrew Wyeth. It also houses an extensive collection of European art and a wide range of contemporary pieces. There’s also a nifty cafe and a movie theater on the premises.
