  • A small little natural history museum with a good bit of interesting exhibits. Kids would love it. Just a few minutes down the road from the center of Bar Harbor. Worth a trip.  more »
  • Great place to visit even with your teenage children. Although it's quite a small place there were a lot of exhibitions and even a small tank with starfish and other small ocean creatures.  more »

  • Nice museum to stop by for a few. Touch tank, a few small exhibits, and a gift shop.
  • Incredible taxidermy that is definitely worth seeing, especially if you have any background in natural science or taxidermy arts. The suggested donation is $3.50, which is a steal for what you get to see anyway.
  • Went for the ranger talk at the tidal pool tank, but the rest of the museum's exhibits are very educational and well-done, and all by the students! Free to visit (donation requested).
  • Great small museum. Enjoyed the tidal pool tank especially.
  • Small, but great. Free, but please donate.
