Field trip season is a little different this year! In a typical fall season, thousands of students, teachers, and chaperones visit the museum for their annual class field trip. During the museum’s closure, we have converted our beloved scavenger hunt into a digital version. Now students can explore the museum from the classroom or from home through a series of interactive videos and digital worksheets.
Join our education staff as we take you on an adventure through four floors of exhibits at the Maine State Museum! You can travel back 12,000 years to a cold world just after the Ice Age, learn how important water power was in Maine a couple hundred years ago, and see how some of Maine’s natural resources shaped industry in our State.
New videos and scavenger hunts will be released every two weeks. Visit this page to see the latest scavenger hunts!
