The Children’s Museum of Theatre of Maine took another step closer to realizing its goal of building a new Museum at Thompson’s Point with its sale to its neighbor, the Portland Museum of Art on October 15th. Proceeds from the sale of its Free Street property will contribute to that project. A capital campaign for the remaining funds needed will be announced in the coming months.
The Children’s facility will remain open in its current Free Street location throughout the construction of the Museum and until the move in which is projected for late 2020 or early 2021.
The PMA currently has no specific redevelopment plans for the property on which it is located. The project provides the PMA with flexibility for future opportunities in a highly developed urban area.
