Winslow Homer studio to open for tours April 2

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — The Portland Museum of Art says it will begin giving tours of its Winslow Homer studio in Scarborough next month.

The museum says its spring tour season runs from April 2 through June 14.

The museum bought the building in 2006 and opened it to the public last September following a multi-million dollar renovation. The studio overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and is where Homer lived from 1883 until his death in 1910 and where he produced some of this most notable work.

The museum is offering three tours of the studio a day in the spring and the fall. Tickets are $55 per person and $30 for museum members.
