Downtown Arts District
Stretching from upper Congress Street to the West End, the Arts
District incorporates several galleries and museums, including the
Portland Museum of Art, the largest of its kind in Maine and dating
back to 1882, and the Maine College of Art. A great way to explore
the Arts District is by participating in the First Art Walk - a
self-guided tour that runs on the first Friday of every month from
5pm to 8pm. Local businesses, museums and galleries are open to the
public and aim to highlight what is new in the art community. The
Portland Art Museum offers free admission for the Art Walk.
