BATH – As part of its ongoing efforts to improve accessibility, the Maine Maritime Museum is offering free admission to all visitors in November, thanks to a grant from the Davenport Trust.

“We are committed to removing as many barriers as possible to make the museum accessible,” said Christopher Timm, executive director, according to a news release from Marshall Communications.

Throughout Free Admission Month, the museum’s Kenneth Kramer Forge and Donnell House will be open for presentations and tours. Interior tours of the Percy & Small shipyard will be held on Saturdays at 1 p.m. The used book sale will be held Friday through Sunday, November 18-20, and there will be a book signing, children’s crafts and free coffee in the museum store on Sunday, November 27.

Open year-round, the museum explores Maine’s rich maritime culture through permanent and rotating exhibits, educational programs, tours and presentations.

As part of its accessibility initiative, kids can get in for free until 2026, thanks to Central Maine Power.

The museum has also partnered with Museums for All, a program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, to provide free admission to anyone with an EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) card. As a participating institution, visitors can present their EBT card at the front desk and receive free admission for up to four people whenever the museum is open.
