Testimonials

“Many, many thanks to you and everyone at UMMA for welcoming us last Thursday night for the Bank’s Women & Money seminar. We felt comfortable and very much at home and will definitely look to host more events there. I really enjoyed talking with you during the event and learning more about the museum and its collection.”

“I recently had a corporate event at the University of Maine’s Museum of Art and it was great! The setting, of course, was lovely. But the Museum staff went beyond any of my expectations in their efforts with my guests, my staff and I. They were so friendly, helpful and professional. It was really a lovely evening and my clients were delighted. Thank you!”
