TradeWinds



Travel the world in TradeWinds on our second floor!




Have you ever wondered what it's like to play the bongo drums?  To cook in an Italian kitchen?  Drive a tractor trailer?  Then come explore the world and Maine's unexpected connections to all corners of the globe.

With a focus on Brazil, Japan, and Italy, you will discover similarities and differences in cultures, customs, geography, commerce, communication, and transportation.

Dress in a kimono, build a tower, or create your own comic in our Japanese home.  

Or cook the family an Italian meal in our kitchen, complete with pizza oven, cash register and plenty of play foods. Lobster is even on the menu!

Fly over a map of the world and discover where Maine's products are headed all over the globe.  Do you know how Maine-made toothpaste gets to the United Kingdom?

Take the helm of a cargo ship and ship products all over the world!
