Hello, and thanks for checking in!

 

In an attempt to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Maine Discovery Museum is closed,

temporarily. We are following the State of Maine and City of Bangor's regulations and guidance

on when it will be safe to open again.

 

However, our staff has been hard at work creating educational opportunities that emphasize our fun, hands-on methods for learning. We look forward to the day when we may safely re-open.

For our members, we will extend your membership when we re-open to compensate for this downtime. As we are very dependent upon museum admissions for our annual operating revenue, this closure will have a significant impact on the museum. However, it is the right step to take from a public health standpoint. We hope to find ways to continue to earn your support during this unprecedented time and we look forward to opening our doors again and enjoying our unique, fun learning opportunities.

For advice about the COVID-19 pandemic and for suggestions about talking with your children you may follow this link: cdc.gov
