We've been to the Maine Discovery Museum quite a few times and my kids love it each time. They are getting older now and still ask to go there. A great attraction in Bangor.

I have been looking into different activities for my 2yr old daughter and myself in the Central Maine region. Found the Maine Discovery Museum from a net search and decided to give it a try today. Hour drive and $15 later and I think I had nearly as much fun as she did! Some of the detractors are correct, MDM... More

We took my niece and nephew to the museum recently and they both had a great time! The live animal interaction was their favorite part!

This is a great place to spend some time, rain or shine! Exhibits are well planned for enjoyment by all ages, and my grandkids just love them all. I think it's amazing that each and every time we visit, they enjoy each exhibit in a different way, on a different scale according to their own personal development! Oh, and the... More

We had a fabulous trip to the Maine Discovery Museum. There is such a variety of exhibits and all of them appeal to multiple age groups. We have been here many times and every time there are different programs and special things to do. On our trip this past weekend there was a special tea party with a performance from... More

We went for an afternoon with our 18 month old daughter. The museum was closing an hour early- their hours are already severely limited. The museum itself is nice but NOTHING works, there are out of order stickers over half of the attractions. The staff offers no explanations or even a sorry for the lack of working attractions... There's not... More

Fun place to stop for kids. If you plan ahead they can partake in fun activities. Admission in pricy for what you get. Located right by downtown shopping for the adults

I really enjoyed taking my kids here. We've even made it a family tradition to visit a museum once a month and this is by far their favorite! Try and take one of the classes. They're lots of fun!

I love the MDM - the place never loses its charm for my daughter and we go at least once per week. We enjoy the exhibits and it's great to see her discover new areas to love as she gets older. Don't miss the special classes, like messy art (a favorite). They're free with your day pass or membership and... More

I took my 7 year old grandson to the museum after we participated in a cancer walk in August. He wasn't sure if he wanted to go to a museum but once we got there I had a hard time getting him to leave! He loved the tree house, the water tables and the Dino dig. We will be going... More
