Belfast Museum, 10 Market St., opens for the season. Featured summer exhibit is “The Jennie Flood Kreger - Celebrating 100 Years.” It was on March 5, 1919, that Belfast launched the largest and only five-masted ship to fill the needs of post-World War I maritime shipping. Her story is told through photographs and first-person accounts.

Other exhibits include maritime history, Capt. Albert W. Stevens, Perry’s Nut House, the William O. Poor apothecary bench and the 1864 Civil War flag quilt. In the barn are the old two-cell jail from City Hall, a horse-drawn funeral carriage, and old Belfast business signs. A children’s “Be a Detective” museum activity is available.

Summer hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 11 a.m.– 4 p.m.
