The museum is mentioned on the local tourist map, on the Duck Tours and sometimes during the scenic trolley and cruise-related rides. It is easy to find. We are located on the Portland Metro Bus Route 1, near Avon Street, on Congress Street. The Amtrak train from Boston arrives less than a mile from the museum, as do the major bus lines. It is a short cab ride from the train or bus stations.

Rufus Porter, artist and inventor, who lived from 1792-1884 and spent his boyhood years in Bridgton, Maine, helped to create an American culture. In his early years, Porter was a portrait painter then later moved on to landscape painting on walls of private homes. His use of a vivid palette and broad, open brushstrokes was a departure from the styles and content of European art.
