I would give it a 3.5 stars. We were passing by and saw Johnson Hall Museum. So we turned the car around and went back. Unfortunately the place is closed. From the outside we can see plenty. It does brings you back into time when there aren't any gadget and folks made due what they had. I can appreciated that.... More

We came across the museum on route # 1 . Sign said closed for renovations but we did take picture from the outside of the buildings. Seem to be working on several buildings on the south side of the property, hope they open again soon.

Upon the death of Mr Johnson the museum closed and an auction was held to sell off exhibit articles. He had a lot of interesting items there when it was active.

We stopped in to see this interesting place because we saw an article in Yankee Magazine. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a slow day at the museum and we were lucky enough to get a private tour by Mr. Johnson. There is a lot to see in the main house with many old buildings to see too. We spent... More

We stumbled upon the Johnson Hall Museum on our way through Wells/Kennebunk, and weren't we lucky. There is really no way to describe the vast collection of items in this amazing museum. To meet Mr. Johnson himself is enough of a delight. I can't imagine the reviewer who said that he was unfriendly. Quite the opposite. He was so wonderful... More

I almost did not want to write a review because this is the place that is best appreciated if you just happen to stumble on it just as we did. You drive along Route 1 and out of the corner of your eye you catch an old grand building and curious tall columns in the driveway and something else catches... More

I totally don't agree with the reviewer who wrote Johnson Hall Museum was not a friendly place. I don't know who else you saw there, but when we visited, the owner of the place, Dr. Johnson, was alone, and we enjoyed every moment we spent in this one-of-a-kind place. He told us stories about two beautiful Tiffany lamps, his several... More
