Penobscot Marine Museum

June 11, 2018

Enjoy a mini getaway with members and friends on a trip to the Penobscot Marine Museum on Monday, June 11th. We'll carpool from MDI and join our docent for a tour of the museum buildings and grounds. Explore the  museum's three-acre campus which includes a classic New England Town Hall, the First Congregational Church, private residences, and a commercial building, ranging in date from about 1810 to 1845.

We'll view seasonal exhibits and have time to explore on our own before heading to Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast. Spend a little more time touring Belfast's historic downtown, art galleries, and waterfront if you like.

Sign up by June 4th to let us know if you can join us. The cost for museum admission (including the docent) is $10 per person. Lunch is not included and will be paid for separately by each member at the restaurant.
