Physically the Museum is comprised of several joined contiguous historic houses on Main Street. There are usually 2-3 display themes in place at once and they change several times through the year. The Brick store staff are available to answer questions. Bottom line = it is worth a visit to experience an original history sharing.

As a Kennebunk resident, I have visited the Brick Store Museum many times (I am a member) either solo or bringing friends who are visiting. The Museum is on Main Street and is a collection of 4 connected buildings, a lovely courtyard, and a program center. From the moment you walk in, you feel you have stepped back 100-200 years....

A small town gem of a museum. Features change several times a year. Often local historical highlights are the focus. Have visited several times and always come away feeling I had an enjoyable non commercial learning experience.

The Brick Store Museum was such a surprise. The Civil War portion was so informative about Maine's contribution to the War, and is perfect for adults and for children. The Mansions history, photos and local contributions of memorabilia was very interesting. We spent over an hour there, but could have happily stayed longer. A well-presented piece of Maine history.

There's an amazing little museum in downtown Kennebunk where I'll bet many residents have never been-- the Brick Store Museum. Entrance is by donation (please don't be cheap). Take your time seeing all of the details upstairs and downstairs. You'll enjoy yourself and be surprised at what you've experienced!

Excellent archives and well-designed displays bring the past to the present community. This museum is housed in three former stores, connected to provide enough space for good exhibits.

Outstanding quality of the displays and excellent information from the docent on our visit. My wife and I really enjoyed our 1st visit to the Brick Store Museum and fully intend to go back. Want to see the Civil War exhibit currently being shown.

Delightful blend of changing exhibits and permanent collections. The museum itself (the buildings) is a museum. Great way to see the region from a more informed, vibrant perspective. This is must see - good for all ages.
