An assessment of the preservation environments of collections spaces in the Maritime History Building, a four-level building that houses exhibition galleries, collections storage, and administrative space.

Maine Maritime Museum requests $10,000 to fund an assessment of preservation environments in the Maritime History Building with a primary focus on systems serving collections storage and exhibition areas. The assessment will evaluate the current impact of the building construction and relevant mechanical systems on the overall preservation of collections in the museum. The assessment is a critical step in prioritizing collections preservation in long-term strategic planning for facilities as well as identifying and sequencing capital investments.

Maine Maritime Museum's nationally and internationally significant collections of art, ships models, tools, artifacts, manuscripts and photographs are housed in the 20-year old Maritime History Building. Despite the building's relative youth, a comprehensive, year-long, peer-reviewed engineering study of water penetration has concluded that the entire building's brick veneer must be removed, the foundation extended, the brickwork replaced, and a new roof-wall eave design installed to minimize water infiltration and maximize the bricks' ability to shed water. All windows must also be replaced with new ones correctly placed in the thermal plane. Because of the magnitude of the work, is it divided into two phases. Phase One is the subject of this grant request and involves the part of the Maritime History Building that is three stories tall housing the library, storage vaults, several small galleries, main lobby and administrative offices. Artifacts exist throughout the structure, and will be moved, stored and replaced as needed as work progresses.

The stabilization of the watercraft collection and construction of visible storage for 117 historic Maine boats.

Maine Maritime Museum will improve and stabilize its 130-object watercraft collection, while simultaneously expanding public access to it, bringing these difficult-to-handle artifacts up to the same curatorial standards for organization and access as the rest of our varied collections. This work lays the foundation for future enhanced display and interpretation of our watercraft collection, to educate about Maine's role in the sea change our nation experienced as it passed from the 19th century's resource-based economy into the 20th century's modern industrial world.

Redesign of existing educational programming and creation of new programs to advance the study of U.S. maritime history, situating Maine's maritime history and culture within a globalized context.

Maine Maritime Museum seeks to redesign existing educational programming and create new programs to advance the study of US maritime history and address post-pandemic needs within the community. The coronavirus pandemic brought to light shortcomings in the museum’s existing programming and its need to diversify its offerings and better connect with evolving national conversations. In its wake, educational staff have developed a strategic plan to design and adapt education programs to better situate Maine’s maritime history and culture within a globalized context. These programs will share a united effort to foster student discussion and reflection on the impact that both Maine and the globalized world has had, and continues to have, on indigenous cultures and racial inequalities.
