Children’s Museum + Theatre of Maine Celebrates Grand Opening

Project Updates / June 25, 2021 by Bruner/Cott

The new Children’s Museum + Theatre of Maine celebrated the long-anticipated grand opening of its brand new building, yesterday.

Museum Director Julie Butcher Pezzino, Museum Board President Kristin Valdmanis, and Maine Governor Janet Mills were among those who spoke at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

A spacious, 20-foot-high entry lobby surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass welcomes visitors of all ages. Connecting the indoors and outdoors, it brings in abundant natural light, setting the stage for a welcoming and relaxing experience for caregivers and children.

 

Easily navigable, the museum and theatre’s exhibit spaces incorporate visual and programmatic connections to Maine culture.

 

Just shy of its 100th birthday, Maddy’s Theatre found a new home at Thompson’s Point where it can truly “unleash magic” and inspire joy and discovery. Equipped with a teaching tech booth, a soundproof viewing gallery, its own dedicated lobby, and a green room and workshop backstage, Maddy’s Theatre is a state-of-the-art facility designed with young, family audiences in mind.

 

Congratulations, Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine! Bruner/Cott is proud to have designed the new home for your beloved institution.
