The Abbe Museum is partnering with the Downeast Institute to host a touch tank experience for families! They and our Abbe educators will be on hand to answer all the questions you have regarding the sea critters who live on the Wabanaki coast and how these animals are an important part of Wabanaki culture, life, and sustenance.

This program is brought to you in conjunction with the Abbe Museum’s 2019 exhibit wolankeyutomon: Take Care of Everything. This collaborative exhibition between Maritime Indigenous Artists, Inc. (MIA) and the Abbe Museum explores the relationship between people and water. It features original artwork by Indigenous artists living in the New England region of the United States and the Canadian Maritimes (from Connecticut to Labrador). Be sure to visit the exhibit after the program!

This is event is being hosted at the Abbe Museum’s downtown location and is free with admission. Questions? Contact us at
