The visiting show featuring a retrospective of the Stonewall riots in 1969 and covering local LGBTQ history has been postponed from summer 2020 to summer 2021 due to COVID-19.
Mobile Exhibit Program
Made to fit anywhere (a small lobby, a busy school entry, a common area…), a Mobile Exhibit provides a three-dimensional view of our shared art, history and culture. Cases are loaned to businesses and organizations for free (though donations are always accepted!).
Read on to learn how you can help to celebrate our region’s heritage and become a partner in preserving the past to inspire the future.
The Bauman Family Gallery
The Bauman Family Gallery, generously supported by the Bauman Family Foundation, was unveiled in June 2018 inside the Museum’s Program Center. It allows the Museum to feature contemporary Maine artists for monthly exhibitions from May – December.

The Victory Garden
The Victory Garden was founded in 2014, in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibition, “Vitamin V: How Food Fought the Second World War.”
It has since grown to supply vegetables to our local food pantry every year, spring through fall. The Victory Garden highlights the importance of food security and conservation in the 1940s and today. Visitors to the Museum are invited to explore the gardens upon their visit.
