We design programs to delight, inspire, and engage via STEM-based explorations. Our programs within the museum walls, on the road, or online provide opportunities for deep engagement and creative self-expression.

Community outreach

Invite one of our Educational Program Coordinators to your organization or event for an engaging science experience. Our specially designed programs are meant to meet the unique needs of an array of settings for an engaging experience. Our hands‐on activities will enrich your science-minded guests and cultivate curiosity about the world around them.

Field trips

Bring your school or recreation group to explore the museum exhibits! You can even enhance your group’s visit by adding one of our STEAM-based learning programs. Our programs provide many opportunities for you to reinforce your curriculum in fun and rewarding ways.

Vacation camps

Maine Discovery Museum camps offer the perfect combination of play and learning. Fun and play and having time and space to be, well, kids, combined with special STEM labs and explorations and creative art and building activities: that’s what Maine Discovery Museum camps are all about!

Summer camp sign ups coming soon


My Day to Play

My Day to Play (MDTP) provides children with disabilities, on the autism spectrum, and with other sensory needs with a safe, comfortable environment to explore! MDTP also aims to give families who face similar challenges a place to connect.

From 11 AM - 3 PM on most Sundays, this program features activities like gross motor sensory play, animal time, or unique science or art activities, in addition to free play on all 3 floors of the museum!
