Maine State Museum Listening Tour on Zoom
You’re invited to be part of Maine State Museum’s Listening Tour, in partnership with the Rockland Public Library. It will be a 1.5 hour thoughtful, informal and fun conversation on Zoom, with closed captioning available. The Museum seeks community input to find the stories and broader themes that resonate with and reflect the many voices, interests, and identities of the people of Maine. Responses will inform the museum’s ongoing work, with a particular focus on the development of the new exhibit that will welcome all visitors as they step inside the museum. The Maine State Museum is currently undergoing a major renovation project which will likely mean that the museum will not reopen until 2024.

What if you don’t know much about museums or Maine history?
The Museum still can learn from you! They want to know what people living in Maine today think is important. After all, what has happened in your life is part of Maine history.
Who else will be there?
Each event will have a facilitator to help guide the discussion, at least one museum employee to listen, and other community members.
