The Coastal Children’s Museum is dedicated to providing children ages 2-9 and their families the opportunity to explore, discover and learn through play about the natural world, the arts and sciences and the diversity of Maine’s coast.

Our Core Values:

* Each Child and parent/caregiver deserves respect.

* Families are the first educators.

* Learning occurs through play.

* The Community is out first resource.

* The Museum is responsible to the world and the environment.

The Coastal Children's Museum opened at Sharp's Point South in the summer of 2009 and we are so excited about our new home and love seeing the children learning, playing and creating. Children (and their parents!) are exploring our indoor sailboat, CedarWorks indoor climber, and “Sharpie’s General Store”.  The museum also hosts many species of tropical and Maine Coast sea life in our "Under the Sea Room" and our full size Gulf of Maine touch tank.  We also have a daily craft at the art table , puppet theater, Tubes and Tracks, and a woodworking bench and wonderful puzzles and books all throughout the museum.

Workshops, special guests, and family fun days are held at the museum entertaining and educating families on diverse topics.  We have had programs on dance and movement, animals and insects, writing and poetry, and everything in between.  You can also have your birthday party at the museum.  Membership is affordable and it entitles you to free admission, and discounts on programs and events, birthday parties, and t-shirts.

Check out our website at which has details and pictures of all our exhibits, past workshops, upcoming events and more. Why not swing by your new Coastal Children’s Museum at 73 Mechanic Street, Rockland. We are open Wed-Sat 10:00- 4:00 and Sundays 1:00 to 4:00. See you there!
