We stopped here while on vacation and it was such a hidden gem! They had great exhibits showcasing local Kennebunk history. We really liked the Memory in Black and White Gallery that showed off old photos that had been taken by a Kennebunk local. It was like traveling back in time. They also had a fantastic room full of illustrations... More

We stopped here in the morning on our way out of Kennebunk, and we were very pleased with the little museum. There were a variety of exhibits explaining the local history of the area. Our favorite was 'Kennebunk History in 50 Objects' and the creative way they told the story of the town. It was an excellent and interesting stop... More

You won't spend hours at this tidy little museum( We are members)but it is a very nice place to stop at for a quick look into local history and culture. It is an enjoyable & informative stop for kids and adults

Wonderful musuem--a real gem for our small town. The facade is beautiful occupying historic storefronts on Main Street. Inside, thoughtful, relevant and interesting exhibitions. Just the right amount too--not too little and not too much. A must see.

Very reasonable priced admission. Me and my Wife the world war 2 rooms more interesting but there's nothing wrong with the other exhibits, they just weren't for us. Staff friendly and polite. You can park outside the premises which is handy if your or pone of your party has difficulty in walking far.

My husband and I visited the museum on a Saturday when they offer a special $10 family admission. We enjoyed learning about local family and shipbuilding history. The WW II Victory Garden propaganda posters' display complete with their own victory garden and seeds for families to take home so they can plant their own was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Finding parking took 5-10 minutes. We are not used to parking on side streets. But well worth it! It was a great little museum. Very educational and the exhibits were well put together. We bought the map if historic homes in the area from the museum and enjoyed driving by them and seeing what architecture style associated with the time... More
