Photography Archivist Kevin Johnson will also be on hand to discuss the museum’s extensive historic photography and postcard collection featured in these exhibits.
Each business attending will receive a gift of five free passes to Penobscot Marine Museum. “We wanted to say thank you to all of our local businesses,” says Liz Lodge, the museum’s Executive Director. “These local businesses do so much for the community and for us, they help make this area vibrant.” Four of the twelve museum buildings will be open in this special preview: the ship captain’s house, Main Street Gallery, Visitors Center, and Merithew.
