PMM’s Junior Adventure Series: ‘Knots’

The Penobscot Marine Museum will hold children’s programs on Wednesdays this summer, starting June 19 and running through Aug. 7. Each program begins at 11 a.m. and runs 30 minutes to an hour and is free with museum admission. Families will discover the museum’s campus through stories, crafts, games and special tours of the exhibits.

Designed for children and their families, each program will explore a different topic and include a craft to take home. The June 19 program on knots will explore how sailors use knots and how we use them in our daily lives. Participants will try out different sailors’ knots, make knot jewelry, and go on a scavenger hunt looking for knots around the museum. Museum admission is free to Searsport and Stockton Springs residents.

Where in the World is John Worth?

The Penobscot Marine Museum kicks off its 2019 Thursday evening speaker series with “Where in the World” with John Worth Thursday, June 20, 6 p.m. Presented in conjunction with the Maine Retired Skippers, the presentation will take place at the museum’s Old Vestry Visitor’s Center, 2 Church St. The cost is $5 for members (and Searsport and Stockton Springs residents) and $8 for general admission.

John Worth spent his life driving tugs, windjammers and other workboats on Penobscot Bay. This past year, he took off on a retirement trip, "The Kite" by water; come hear about the ports he visited and the adventures he had traveling up the Hudson, Erie Canal, St. Lawrence, and down the Chambly Canal, through Lake Champlain, and back out the Hudson.

PMM’s 2019 Speaker Series has been made possible thanks to support of Hamilton Marine. For more information, visit penobscotmarinemuseum.org or call 548-2529.
