Join Penobscot Marine Museum Curatorial Staff for live lunchtime Zoom presentations. Rotating between Curator Cipperly Good, Photo Archivist Kevin Johnson, and Digital Collections Curator Matt Wheeler, each week a different staff member will focus on one of their favorite artifacts or collections. Enjoy close up views and interesting stories, plus an opportunity to ask your own questions and chat with PMM staff!

On this Monday, Curator Cipperly Good heads to the Gone Fishing! exhibit to see the Matinicus double-ender boats built by members of the Young Family. We will compare the building styles of father Lin and son Merrill. Find out why the double-ender is one of Maine’s quintessential designs.
