Imagine your wedding, company party, board meeting, or children's party at the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor, Maine.

There are several unique spaces that may be rented for private, corporate, and non-profit functions. At the downtown facility, the Community Gallery is a nice setting for a workshop or meeting, and the Courtyard is a pleasant spot for a summer evening gathering. The Circle of the Four Directions is perfect for an intimate wedding and the Community Gallery, which is adjacent to our catering kitchen, works well for a small reception. Our original facility in Acadia National Park is a wonderful setting for a small reception. 

For all inquiries about renting these gorgeous spaces, please contact or call 207-288-3519.


I had a memorable experience at the Abbe Museum. I hosted a Business After Hours for the Chamber of Commerce and at the same time was an introduction of my business to the community. I couldn’t have found a better place to do it. The Abbe Museum has an elegant, fine and sophisticated ambience to make a special event memorable. The staff was with me along the way and they were incredibly helpful. All my guests were wowed with the structure of the place and the enjoyable environment that offers. I couldn’t be happier, and I am glad I chose the Abbe Museum to make an extraordinary event
