Maine Maritime Museum


Come join our free STEAMbox family workshops, where you will explore maritime topics through hands-on learning in STEM + the Arts. Create, build and problem solve to figure out how large ships are able to float, or how animals survive in the winter. Pulling from our collections and our surrounding environment, you will learn about sailors’ lives from long ago and how some of the smallest organism on our planet can have the biggest impact on our lives. All workshops are held on Saturdays from 10:30-12:00pm. STEAMbox programs are generously funded by First Federal Savings, allowing us to offer this program free to the public.  All ages are welcome, content level is appropriate for ages 5+. Preregistration is required, and opens one month in advance. Get tickets here.

Maine has a long history of fishing from salmon and trout to whales and lobster. The fishing industry has evolved over the years and Maine has evolved with it. Come and learn about the fish that can be found from the Kennebec River to the Gulf of Maine and take part in a traditional printing technique from our sister town of Shariki, Japan.
