The Museum will reopen on May 1, 2016

BAR HARBOR The Abbe Museum, the first and only Smithsonian Affiliate in the state of Maine, will be closed until April 30, 2016, while a new core exhibit is designed and installed in the Museum's main gallery. The exhibit, People of the First Light, is the first large-scale permanent exhibit of its kind for the Abbe.

'The exhibit will occupy approximately 2,100 square feet in our downtown Bar Harbor location,' said Abbe President and CEO, Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko. 'During the course of the past year and a half in planning for our new strategic plan, numerous community conversations occurred and some of those resulted in identifying specific financial sustainability strategies that influence our exhibit planning efforts. The conversations all pointed to the need for a permanent exhibit.'
