Bradley and I went to the Children's Museum and Theatre of Maine downtown Portland yesterday. I have to say I was quite spoiled by The Children's Museum of the Upstate in Greenville, SC. The one in Portland is NOTHING like Greenville. It's nice enough with several fun exhibits but it's rather small and can be very crowded. I'm not sure if Bradley will be interested in going once he's a little older. It seems like most everything is geared for children 7 and under. A positive point is that they offer many programs for the children throughout the day. Bradley really enjoyed the Messy Art, Turtle Time, and the Stage Story. Admission is $10 per person and children under 18 months are free. The first Friday of every month they offer $2 admission from 5-8 pm which is really cool. The hours are 10 am - 5 pm. There is a parking garage a block past the museum which offers discounted pricing at $2/hour for people going to the Children's Museum. The garage fills up fast so be sure and get there early. You are allowed to bring your own food and drink inside but there are designated places assigned for eating. There is one vending machine on the lower level that offers healthy snacks and drinks. Overall, it's a fun place to go for a couple of hours but I'm not sure we will buying an annual membership like we did in Greenville.
