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

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....
