Brick Store Museum


Back by popular demand!

To celebrate the area’s shipbuilding heritage, the Brick Store Museum will present a special tour focusing on our seafaring past. On Saturday, October 6th, visitors are invited to learn about the Kennebunks’ shipbuilding era during the “Shipbuilding Odyssey,” beginning at 1:15pm. The popular excursion recently sold out in August, so a third event has been planned for October 6th. Tickets are now on sale at the Museum and online.

The “Shipbuilding Odyssey” begins with a brief illustrated look at what life was like in the Kennebunks’ many 19th-century shipyards. Guests then embark on a special, narrated trolley excursion stopping at various historic locations associated with shipbuilding along the Kennebunk River in the 1800s, including the sites of the former Bourne & Kingsbury and Titcomb yards, the Landing, and the locks.

The adventure concludes back at the Museum at 4:00PM, where guests will receive a commemorative souvenir of their historical trip. Advance reservations are required as space is limited. To secure a spot for the tour, call the Museum at 207-985-4802, or purchase tickets online HERE. Tickets: $35/person and $30 for current Museum members.
