Located on the Bowdoin College campus is the Main State Music Theatre. This venue next to downtown provides the perfect opportunity to experience the local Brunswick charm with quality shows and beautiful acoustics.
Bowdoin College has been Brunswick’s crown jewel since 1794, and no trip is complete without a stroll through its 33-acre site, Bowdoin Pines. Enjoy the scenery of white pines, then catch a theater performance, listen to a lecture or make a visit to the two museums on campus.
Pay a visit to the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, where every visit is unique. It boasts a beautiful collection of pieces from ancient to modern times as well as showcases the works of a variety of Maine artists.
Take a stroll down Maine Street, Brunswick’s 1/2 mile long stretch in downtown filled with locally owned shops, restaurants and cafes. This is the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon or evening.
If you are a history buff, stop by the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum located next to the Bowdoin College campus. This house celebrates Joshua L. Chamberlain, the Civil War General, hero of the Battle of Gettysburg, past governor of Maine and former President of Bowdoin College. This is a must-see for those interested in Civil War and local Maine history.
Another gem on the Bowdoin Campus is The Peary-Macmillan Artic Museum featuring exhibits about the North Pole explorations of Admiral Peary and his counterpart, Donald MacMillan, in the early 1900s. The more adventurous crowd can take a boat from Portland to see Admiral Peary’s restored home on Eagle Island, a Maine state park.
