We will give your entire group a brief welcome. Then, you will divide into smaller groups with at least one chaperone in each group. We recommend touring in groups of no larger than 10.
The small groups will tour the museum on their own. To ensure all students get to enjoy a PMM staff-led Set Sail Demonstration and a tour about the sea captains and their families, we may organize a schedule for your visit.
Exhibits to explore include the orientation exhibit and temporary photography exhibit in our Main Street Gallery, the photography exhibit in Old Vestry, a tour of the Fowler-True-Ross House, the Crew's Life hands-on exhibit in the Fowler-True-Ross House, 4 boat barns featuring small craft (Wabanaki birch bark canoes, Maine peapods, a lobster boat, etc.), the Working the Bay exhibit in the Merithew House, the Gone Fishing exhibit in Old Town Hall, and the hands-on seacoast life in the late 1800s exhibit in Savage Education Center. Please see our campus map
for more information.
A visit to PMM involves walking between buildings and some exhibits in unheated spaces. Please dress for the weather.
For field trips while PMM is closed (mid-October through Memorial Day weekend), please contact Jeana directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
