PLEASE JOIN US IN CONTINUING OUR COMMITMENT TO MAINE.

Seventeen years and over 1,000,000 visitors later, Maine Discovery Museum (MDM) is a pillar of our community. We educate children and families, encourage creativity, nurture a sense of wonder, and challenge all to learn in new and innovative ways. MDM is a private, non-profit organization that does not receive ongoing funding from the City or State. Revenue from admissions and paid programs support 37% of the Museum’s annual operating costs. We count on membership dollars to keep the museum open year-round and our popular programs growing. The financial support of our business community is essential for MDM to continue as a place of education, creativity, and wonder for children and their families.
