Our Response to Covid-19

We care about your health. The Museum was closed as usual for the winter, and we suspended our usual winter visitor policy as a precaution to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We ask that you forgo any requests for off-season visits.

The local schools have been closed for the remainder of the scholastic year — so all school events at the museum are postponed as well. All public events for May have been canceled or are being rescheduled. The Senior Mixer is being rescheduled for October 26th, 2020.

At this time, we are busy getting ready for the season, including working to complete our new exhibit, “Engines of Change: A Suffrage Centennial.” We tentatively plan to re-open for the season on June 1, with a commitment to fully implement all reopening guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Maine Center for Disease Prevention and Control (MCDPC).

This situation is changing rapidly, and we are monitoring it to make decisions about future events and activities at the museum. As with everyone else, our plans are shifting with the most current and best information and we are making decisions in the best interests of our staff, volunteers and guests. If you have any questions, please email us at info@sealcoveautomuseum.org, or get in touch via Facebook Messenger.

 The Seal Cove Auto Museum fosters joyful experiences for people of all ages and interests. Our collection features some of the earliest automobiles and motorcycles, as well as clothing and accessories, from 1895 through the early 1920s. Antique auto enthusiasts, history buffs, as well as anyone who simply loves stories or wants to experience something entirely different, will delight in this unique collection.

Inspired by over 50 vehicles, the Museum shares exciting stories about this transformational time in American history. Stories about invention and innovation, art, design, women’s rights, and social and economic changes can be traced through the early automobile, when inventors were experimenting with steam, electricity, and gas-powered engines. The Seal Cove Auto Museum shares these stories — the innovation, ingenuity, and the power of imagination — that created these vehicles and transformed life in America.

The Museum hosts many programs and events throughout the year including demonstration days, Cars & Coffees, dances, dinners, kids’ activities, and more. Visit our Events Page for more information.

“We all enjoyed our first visit to the Auto Museum.  We found it fascinating and appreciate all the knowledge which was shared with us. We had three generations with us today, and each one of us had a wonderful time and learned a lot in the process.  We will highly recommend your museum to our friends and family.”
