Maine Maritime Museum is joining other museums and cultural institutions across the country in offering FREE admission to federal employees and their immediate families during the government shutdown.
“We hope to provide an opportunity for entertainment and education during what is surely a difficult time for furloughed workers and their families — a portion of the 15,000-plus federal employees who call Maine home,” said Executive Director Amy Lent.
Admission includes access to all of the museum’s current exhibits, including The Tropics Next Door: A Look at Maine and the Caribbean, an exploration of Maine’s ties to the Caribbean region, past and present.
Free admission is valid for all federal employees (photo ID required) and their immediate families (spouse and children) during the duration of the shutdown. Maine Maritime Museum is open seven days a week, from 9:30 am to 5 pm.
