Free Admission in November at Maine Maritime Museum
Davenport Trust sponsors free admission for the month
BATH, Maine – As part of its ongoing effort to improve accessibility, Maine Maritime Museum is offering free admission to all visitors in the month of November thanks to a grant from the Davenport Trust.
“We are committed to removing as many barriers as we can to make the museum accessible,” said Christopher Timm, executive director. “We are so grateful for the Davenport Trust’s support of this important initiative.”
Throughout free admission month, the museum’s Kenneth Kramer Blacksmith Shop and Donnell House will be open for demonstrations and tours. Indoor tours of the Percy & Small shipyard will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturdays. A used book sale will occur November 18 – 20, and on Museum Store Sunday, November 27, everything in the store will be 10% off, plus book signings, kid’s crafts, and complimentary coffee.
Open year-round, Maine Maritime Museum explores Maine’s rich maritime culture through permanent and rotating exhibits, educational programs, tours, and demonstrations.
As part of its accessibility initiative, children 17 and under receive free admission through 2026 thanks to Central Maine Power. The museum has also partnered with Museums for All, a program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, to provide free admission to anyone with an EBT (electronic benefit transfer) card. As a participating institution, visitors can simply present their EBT card at the front desk to receive free admission for up to four people any time the museum is open.
