Earn a Scout Badge!

MDM offers badge-friendly presentations for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of all ages. Scout Badge Presentations are available for daytime group visits.

Badge presentations are similar to our Museum Add-On Adventures, but they are designed specifically for badge requirements.

  • Presentations last for approximately 35-40 mins.
  • The Badge Presentation is FREE with an Overnight visit.
  • They depend on seasonal availability of materials and availability of presenter.
  • For other details about pricing and group size requirements please call us at (207)262-7200 or email us at

Scouts can work toward a science in action, technology, health and fitness or culture badge.  You may choose from a wide selection of Badge Presentations prior to your visit. For all the options download our Scout Activity Guide.

Only one presentation topic will be prepared, although we may offer several sessions of that one topic, depending on the group size. In order to best serve your group, your selection needs to be confirmed NO LATER than two weeks prior to your visit. Although this program was designed with scouts in mind, any group, classroom or extended family can request these presentations. The same prices and group size requirements will apply.

Consider making your scout field trip an overnight!  For more details about Overnight visits, click here. Up to 26 children, up to 3 sessions, all ages.

To confirm your selection, or to request a custom program, please contact Trudi Plummer, Director of Education, (207) 262-7200 ext. 102,

We look forward to helping you earn your badges!
