Raney with KidsEducation at the Abbe Museum is central to our mission to inspire new learning about the Wabanaki Nations with every visit. No matter the time of year, there is always something going on at the Abbe Museum! We have a twelve month calendar of programs for all ages, from lectures and films, to crafts and games.


Native scholars, artists and musicians present workshops and
demonstrations at our locations in downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia
National Park. Staff at the Abbe present a wide array of programs, both
at the Museum, and by reservation, for historical societies, service organizations, libraries, and other groups throughout the state.

We also offer educational programs for school children, and workshops and resources for teachers. All of our education programs are multi-disciplinary, hands-on, objects based, and meet state education mandates.


The Abbe offers a variety of resources to help educators teach about the Wabanaki. Teacher workshops, free online curriculum material, lists of recommended resources, and our educator discounts in the Museum Shop
are just a few of these resources.Astra with Kids


Internships at the Abbe Museum are a great way for students to learn
more about museums and the Wabanaki. Interns get a chance to
experience the variety of museum work, from education and collections,
to exhibits and guest services.




Education initiatives at the Abbe Museum are made possible in part
by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
