Maine Discovery Museum Review

Three floors with more than 60 interactive exhibits let kids explore the state's ecosystem in Nature Trails, learn about other cultures in TradeWinds, step into classic children's books like Charlotte's Web—all written by Maine authors—in Booktown, and unearth dinosaur "bones" in DINO Dig. There's also drop-in art studio and daily programs on art and other topics. Visitors to Acadia National Park often head here on a rainy day.
