Well organized museum! The staff was really friendly and sweet!
There's a sentence on the exterior wall, and this brought tears to my eyes and it makes me want to visit the museum even more. The sentence is : The Only Meaningful Legacy We Will Leave This World Will Be The Difference We Made In Others, Especially In The Life Of A Child.
We loved everything, but since my husband and me were reading every sign, we didnt had enough time to visit. Our sons who are 10 and 8 years old, really enjoyed it, and had the time to visit the museum 3-4 times! So if you don't read everything it can be a quick visit, but if you want to read everything, then allow at least 4 hours.
I brought my camera, as usual, but we had to take pictures with the flash off, it's a bit dark so, some pics are blurry, so be sure to bring your tripod.
Hubby and I will be back to continue our visit. It was really interesting to see all these old things and especially to read about them. It's not only written " Fire truck built in 1907" it's also written about its history with the State of Maine. Also who donated this or that!
Also there is a memorial for the World War II outside the museum, which is really touching.
The staff were really friendly, especially a man, we talk together for a long time! He was fun and sweet! Be sure to talk with him...I'm sad to not even know his name...
