Introducing the Sail Shed Café

In March of 2021, Mollie Jellison and her father Terry Geaghan found themselves in a pickle. Mollie had recently moved back to Maine with her family to start a restaurant with her father; they had a talented front-of-house team, a kitchen staff, and a vision, but suddenly, no location.

May 14 is Community Day

We officially declare May 14 the start of the 2022 summer season! Featuring free admission, discounted cruises, and guided tours, Community Day kicks off with members from each decade of the museum’s 60-year history raising the flags over the Wyoming evocation and a cannon salute at noon.

Getting Creative with Family STEAMBox Workshops 

Maine Maritime Museum educators have been busy welcoming families to our monthly STEM + Arts (STEAM) program, STEAMBox.  In these workshops, families explore maritime topics through hands-on learning through creativity and problem-solving. How do boats float? How do local animals survive winter? Or how do we know about sailors lives from long ago? Read on to find out!
