BAR HARBOR — The Abbe Museum will offer free admission on select days in 2016 and in winter.
Free admission will be offered on the museum’s opening day (May 1), Memorial Day (May 30), July 4, Labor Day (Sept. 5), Indigenous Peoples’ Day (Oct. 10) and Thursdays through Saturdays in November and December.
“People of the First Light,” a new exhibit currently being installed, is the first large-scale permanent exhibit of its kind for the Abbe. The museum expects the opening of the new exhibit during Acadia National Park’s centennial year to lead to record visitation.
Machias Savings Bank is sponsoring the free admissions.
