Are you looking for a fun way to spend one of our cold, snowy weekends? What about taking an educational trip the whole family could enjoy?
The Raymond Village Library recently received a generous gift, which allowed the library to acquire a family pass for the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath. Founded in 1962, the Maritime Museum is located on the banks of the Kennebec river in Maine’s own “City of Ships.” The museum features both indoor and outdoor exhibits, in the case of a rare warm day this winter, as well as Mary E, a newly restored 1906 schooner. Maine wooden shipbuilding tradition is still thriving in the Maritime Museum’s working Boatshop, where families can chat with local craftsmen. The museum is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information about hours, exhibits, and attractions can be found on their website: www.mainemaritimemuseum.org
The family pass includes free general admission to the Maritime Museum for a family group of up to eight people. The pass can be signed out for a day of your choosing.
The Raymond Village Library also has free or reduced-price admission passes for the Southworth Planetarium, Portland Museum of Art, the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine, and the Maine Wildlife Park. Please contact the library with any questions at (207) 655-4283.
