Something for everyone, each week! MDM offers these activities FREE with your admission!
Join Maine Discovery Museum educators and volunteers for our popular weekly programs, free with paid admission to the museum:
Messy Art is our popular Little One’s Art time. While kids let the glitter, cut-outs, puffballs and washable paints fly they build artistic confidence and skills. Messy Art helps increase self-expression and the use of young children’s imaginations. Ages 2+
Creativity Corner brings in a whole new way of creating art in 3D boxes, wooden pieces, recyclables, fabric, yarn and more. We use materials little hands can easily manipulate and encourage the creativity big imaginations can dream up! Ages 3+
Science Detectives focuses on physics, chemistry and materials science and engineering. Hands-on, age and developmentally appropriate experiments promise joyful, memorable “aha!” moments which encourage an interest in science and learning. Contents are based on the National Science Education Standards and geared towards the Maine Learning Results. Ages 3+
Clay Play encourages creative play with clay and dough. Kids use tools like rollers, pounders and pressers to exercise little hands and build fine motor skills. Leave the mess with us! Ages 2+
We fill the week with activities for you to choose from, both in the morning and afternoon. Maine Discovery Museum is THE place for growing minds, budding scientists, and future artists. Together, we’ll ignite the spark for life-long learning in your child! For details about our weekly programs, please visit our online calendar.
