There is no doubt that one of the most amazing things about living in Maine is the fact that we have access to so many outdoor activities.  Beautiful beaches, lakes and river for boating, mountains for hiking, and more.

But, unfortunately, the weather does not always cooperate with us.  There are days when you just don't want to be outside.

So, how do you keep your family occupied on days like that?

Well, if your family loves learning new things, we have the solution.  We have put together a list of lesser-known Maine museums that are worth a visit.  As many of these are near the middle of the state (and Mid-coast), they are probably not more than a few hours' drive from where  you are now.

10 Maine Museums

Do you love learning new things? Why not visit one of Maine's incredible museums? Here are 9 very unique museums that are probably less than a two hour drive from where you are now. Please Note: Some of these museums may still have limited hours or COVID-19 restrictions. So, please call ahead (check their website) and be prepared.

When we compiled the above list, we tried to make sure the museums included covered a variety of topics.  Everything from art, to technology, to vehicles, and more.

So, what other Maine (or New England) museums need to be on our list?  Let us know by sending us a message through our app or on Facebook.  We really want your input.
