Western Maine Play Museum is a children’s museum in Wilton, Maine. We offer families a place to have fun and focus on the most important work of childhood- PLAY! We opened our doors in August of 2019 and quickly became a favorite place for playtime, parties, and fun events. Since reopening in September 2020 after a five month closure due to the pandemic, we have been finding ways for visitors to safely return, and in 2021 we plan to grow even more.

The Program Director is responsible for the planning and execution of museum programs and events.
