Here is JB’s latest update on the Lounge:
The Membership Lounge is opening soon; we are currently obtaining furniture. The lounge is adjacent to the shop and offers members, volunteers, and friends a place to meet or relax. There is free WiFi available and complimentary coffee and tea. We will be adding display space for selected items from the Abbe's permanent collection. Books and videos will be available to enjoy while at the Museum. Members may reserve the room in advance for a quiet meeting place in downtown Bar Harbor. We value our dedicated members and hope this will provide another benefit for their vital support.
We hope that members of the Abbe Community will enjoy this new addition to the Abbe Museum. Please stop by, enjoy the new Lounge, and let us know what you think! Please check in with Guest Services for a copy of the Room Use Guidelines. The Lounge is open to all Abbe Members, Staff, Volunteers, and special guests of the Abbe Museum, which include the guests of Members, Staff, and Volunteers. The Lounge is available for use during regular open hours.
