The Maine State Museum will be closed to the public at least through April 30 in an effort to curtail the spread of the coronavirus. Announcements about museum open hours after April 30 will be made as soon as possible. For additional information or questions, please contact the museum by phone, (207) 287-2301, or email at

The office of the Friends of the Maine State Museum will also be closed, but staff will continue to conduct business via telephone and email.

Cultural organizations like the museum are essential for enlightening us and for lifting our spirits – under normal circumstances, and at trying times like these. Please consider a gift to the museum’s 501(c)3 non-profit affiliate, the Friends of the Maine State Museum. Join or Donate Today!
