Thanks to the generosity of Machias Savings Bank, admission is free now through December 23rd! The Museum is open Thursday - Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm.
We at Machias Savings Bank are honored to partner with the Abbe Museum again to offer free admission in 2016. The Museum really is such a gem and locals and tourists alike should stop in for a visit. The new permanent exhibit, People of the First Light, is a must see!

As Maine’s first and only Smithsonian Affiliate, the Abbe’s free admission program aligns nicely with the Smithsonian’s goal of being easily accessible to the public, and it helps raise the Abbe’s statewide visibility as the only museum dedicated solely to sharing the story of the Wabanaki Nations.
For the past 24 years, Machias Savings Bank has been an incredibly generous supporter of the Abbe Museum, and we can't thank them enough for their unwavering support!
