Hudson Museum

Welcome to the Hudson Museum

The Hudson Museum is one of Maine’s premier cultural institutions with a rich and
significant anthropological collection including many artifacts associated with Maine’s
four tribes–the Penobscot, Passmaquoddy, Maliseet and Micmac

Founded in 1986, the museum is located on the University of Maine campus in Orono, and serves a wide audience including visitors to the Greater Bangor area, UMaine students and faculty,
researchers, and school groups of all types.

Since its establishment the Museum's collections have been augmented by pieces from across the country and the world. Mesoamerica, the Arctic, Mississippi Valley, Northwest Coast and many other regions of the Americas are now represented in the Hudson Museum's collections, as are New Guinea and other parts of Southwest Asia.
