Our mission is to provide children and families the opportunity to explore, discover and learn through play about the natural world, the arts and sciences and the diversity of Maine’s mid-coast.

The Coastal Children’s Museum, formerly known as The Midcoast Children’s Museum, began 1985. The original museum closed after two years, but continued as a museum without walls until 2009, when we opened at our current location. 


Bringing exciting programs to schools and community venues 

we have been offering children and families in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties education and entertainment for over 20 years. 

We are always improving, working to make our museum as awesome and up to date as possible!
