MDM is excited about the many diverse and educational activities and programs added to summer programing for museum goers and their families.
Bangor, Maine July 8, 2012 –Maine Discovery Museum is excited to highlight some of our most unique and engaging activities in our regular summer programming for the month of July for both local museum goers and travels to experience a touch of Maine during their visits.
