Museum in the Streets
Museum in the Streets is a heritage discovery trail within the community, where the streets themselves become the museum. The series of 25 panels that makes up the tour, includes rare photographs, documents and records of Kennebunk's history, and invites people to discover our unique story at their own pace, over the course of an afternoon, or several return visits. This program has been adopted in many communities in Maine, New England and most recently in France. The panels were installed in the fall of 2012.

You can download the Kennebunk walking brochure for a self-guided tour. Brochures will be available in the spring in Town Hall, Library, Brick Store Museum and at local businesses.
