Our family started our relationship with the Children's Museum when it was situated on the Westbrook College campus, back in the late 80's. It was called the Portland Children's Museum back then. J- thought it was great fun, even though in quite cramped quarters in one of the old college dormitories on Stevens Avenue. Since the early 90's, it has resided, under the title seen here: the Children's Museum of Maine, in this 4,000 square foot Victorian building on Free Street, right next to the Portland Museum of Art. If you're in or coming to the city this summer with children, this kid-friendly building is a 'don't miss' attraction. J- would attest to that!
