We normally don't visit museums during our travels but my husband was set on this one - wanted to see the original portrait of Captain Fairfield (I referred to it as the Brick HOUSE museum in another review, oops) GREAT history and information of the area and great WWII propaganda tribute. We went in on a quiet tuesday afternoon (after... More

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

there are lots of items. Excellent display. We try to do two things a day. The museum is good and the ship rides are great.

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....

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!
