For Families


Family friendly programming, events, and activities for all ages and abilities.

Spark curiosity and inspire creativity with a range of programs and activities the whole family can enjoy. Discover the past, connect the present, and imagine the future as you learn, create, and explore together.

Homeschool Families

We welcome many homeschool families and co-op groups through out the year.  If you are interested in scheduling a tour for your homeschool or group or are interested in borrowing our Child Labor Travel Trunk, click here.

School Vacation Programming

School vacation can be so much more than sitting at home! Learn to weave with a local artist, hunt for objects as you go on a museum scavenger hunt, listen to a story read by a local librarian, and so much more.

School-age kids and their families are invited to join us for hands-on, creative, and engaging activities during school breaks. Free with museum admission.

Summer Programming

Summer is meant for having fun and you can find it at Maine MILL.  Programming and events for school-aged children will be available during summer vacation for partner summer camp programs.  Contact us for more information.

Movement at the Museum

Discover new interests, connect socially, foster health and wellness, and engage with our museum—all while moving your body.
