Security was friendly, visitor parking on-site. You have access to all 3 floors to view Eartha and they have an elevator if needed.

If you’re in the area, stop in. There is an adjacent parking lot. The rotating globe is lit up. Really cool. Located across the street is the Visitor’s Center for Maine.

Free! It is in the lobby of an office building, so you just go during work hours. They are very accommodating to visitors coming in to see the globe.
