This museum is truly a great place to explore. I visited when I took a group to Maine in 2006 (I think that was the year . . .) We also visited back in the day before the museum re-located. Memory says it was, for all practical matters, in a re-purposed house. The displays are great.

Marcel,

You are close enough that it would be a nice trip for a 3 day weekend. Very pretty area and the museum itself is worth the trip.
