Who’s At The Point
In Fall of 2019, Thompson’s Point will become the new home of The Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine.
CMTM has been steadily growing both its visitorship and educational offerings for more than 25 years. But, the physical limitations of their current downtown space have restricted their ability to expand their programming and service all those they wish to be engaging with.
International Cryptozoology Museum
The International Cryptozoology Museum is the only one of its kind, in the world! Cryptozoology is the study of hidden or unknown animals, such as Yetis, Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and Sea Serpents, as well as hundreds of other yet-to-be-found animals (cryptids) worldwide. The ICM has been featured on Time Magazine’s Top 15 Weirdest Museums in the World, and has won many other awards including Roadside America’s Top Choice to Visit August 2018.

Tree of 40 Fruit
Part art, part agricultural preservation, The Tree of 40 Fruit grows over 40 different types of stone fruit including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and almonds. Sculpted through the process of grafting, the trees blossom in variegated tones of pink, crimson, and white in spring— in summer they bear a multitude of fruit. Primarily composed of native and antique stone fruit varieties, the trees are a form of conservation, preserving heirloom stone fruit varieties that are not commercially produced or available.
