Review for Abbe Museum, Bar Harbor, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Abbe draws on more than 80 years of curatorial and archeological effort and a deep relationship with the Wabanaki to create a 21st century resource for Mount Desert Island, Maine, America and the wider world. Its gifted leadership and staff know that "place" is at once historical, cultural, physical and emotional. Those who enter the Abbe environment discover the deep history, vibrant present, and promising future of the First People of this place.
