OPEN DAILY 9:30 to 5

Despite this year’s unexpected challenges, Maine Maritime Museum pulled together to change course and  develop creative ways to navigate this new reality. Generous donors like you helped the museum start 2020 with free admission  for the entire months of January and February, and thousands of families visited before the museum closed from mid-March to June.

The First Impressions project, a complete redesign of the museum’s arrival space, improved visitor accessibility and created engaging new ways to explore the ecology of the Kennebec River.
