Look for our sign out front, off the south parking lot, next to the 10 ft Bigfoot at Thompson’s Point. Our entrance desk is right inside, before the gift store and the exhibits.
The main customer parking lot entrance is the building’s front door for the Museum. You may wear a mask throughout your visit, and maintain social distancing, if you wish, but it is no longer required. The air circulation is awesome because we have 32 feet tall ceilings.
The Bigfoot sculpture is your key to what door to use. You will find a “32 Resurgam Place” above our glass window (temporarily being upgraded).
Did you know you can step off the Downeaster Amtrak train or a Concord bus at Portland’s nearby Transportation Center, and walk less than a fourth of a mile to our Museum? Or drive your vehicle right off I-95/I-295 and park in our ample lot at our Museum?
