Been here a couple different times on school visits. For a little museum they do a great job offering differing exhibits. Their festival of tress during Christmas time is great!

This place is filled with so much information for its size! Bonus, the big gallery switches out exhibits every 8 months so there is always something new.

For a small museum, the Saco Museum has a lot to offer. The special exhibits are unique and well-displayed, and the permanent exhibits are interesting. The museum shop offers old and new books, as well as unique gift items.
