Abbe Open House and Annual Meeting

Date: Friday Jun 03, 2016 - Friday Jun 03, 2016
Time: TBD - TBD


Stop by the Abbe Museum to check out our brand new core exhibit, People of the First Light! There will also be an overview of what the Abbe’s been up to, as well as yummy snacks and beverages. All are welcome!

The Abbe Museum was founded in 1926 and first opened to the public in 1928 as a private museum at Sieur de Monts Spring in Lafayette National Park (later renamed Acadia National Park). Early supporters included George B. Dorr, “the father of Acadia,” and John D. Rockefeller, Jr. The Abbe opened its year-round downtown Museum in 2001 with permanent and changing exhibition galleries, spaces for educational programming, comfortable visitor amenities, and climate controlled storage. As Maine’s first and only Smithsonian Affiliate, the Abbe’s mission is to inspire new learning about the Wabanaki Nations with every visit.
