Port Pals: Family Crafts Inspired by Ports Around the World

July 31, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Looking for fun activities for kids? Fridays this summer from 10 am to 12 pm, join us for Port Pals, for a family-friendly tour of the world’s famous sea ports. Every Friday from July 10-August 14 we will feature a different port that Maine sailors visited on their journeys. Make crafts inspired by the cultures of New England, Panama, Peru, China, Indonesia, and France. Museum educators will be on hand to answer questions and provide an up-close look at objects from the museum’s collection related to these places. Complete a craft and receive a stamp in your Port Pals passport!

Port Pals is FREE with admission; and FREE for members. All sessions will be held outside in the museum’s historic shipyard. There is a limit of four families per session and each family will have their own assigned tables and craft supplies. Tables can accommodate up to eight family members. Due to limited capacity, preregistration is highly encouraged.

To book a table for your family, call (207) 443-1316 x331, or email guestservices@maritimeme.org.
