Discover the Natural History of Coastal Maine

The George B. Dorr Museum of Natural History features dioramas of coastal Maine wildlife and a tide pool tank that houses a variety of live sea stars, hermit crabs, snails and other marine creatures.
Visitors of all ages can touch, smell, listen and create while learning about the natural history of Maine. All exhibits are designed and produced by students at College of the Atlantic.
The George B. Dorr Museum is housed in the original headquarters of Acadia National Park, renovated and expanded to provide a unique site for exhibits, programs, and activities. The gift shop offers a wonderful selection of books, gifts, and jewelry for children and adults related to the natural sciences.
The Island Explorer bus stops across from campus daily throughout the summer.
Museum staff and students lead a variety of programs and activities encouraging everyone to participate in natural history learning. Programs include: Museum tours, Whale Anatomy and Ecology, Nature Walks and Scavenger Hunts. For more information on school and community group programs, contact the Museum for further information.
