Urgent Message from Maine Aquarium President, Raymond Cronkite

Photos of Planned New Maine Aquarium and of Current Conditions


The former Maine Aquarium closed during the peak season in July of 1997. It was located on a 70 acre parcel of land off U.S. Rt 1 (across from FunTown, U.S.A) in Saco, Maine.

Plans were underway to redevelop the Maine Aquarium but again the Maine Aquarium encountered unexpected setbacks...but the dream is still alive and stronger then ever.

This web site is much the way it was left when the Maine Aquarium closed in 1997 but efforts will be underway to upgrade this site.

Maine Aquarium will pay you $25.00 for each photo and $50.00 for each video taken inside or on the grounds of the Maine Aquarium that you allow Maine Aquarium to post on this website and that does in fact become posted on this website.

Please send photos, videos and comments acknowledging your ownership of the photo(s) or video(s) and authorizing Maine Aquarium to display them on this website in return for compensation as stated above.

Please provide your name and address along with any other useful information such as the date or the approximate date photo(s) or video(s) were taken along with any other useful or interesting information. Please forward photos or videos to

If by regular mail please mail them to Director, Maine Aquarium, PO Box 107, Kennebunkport, ME 04046.

Your suggestions are always welcomed. Please send your suggestions and comments to:

Note: This site was constructed years ago during the early entry of the world wide web and when the general modem speed was 9,600 bps, thus the reason photos, etc., herein were kept at a minimum. Though sub-standard by today's technological advances this site remains available for your viewing to give you an idea of who we were and what the Maine Aquarium was about... and all without a dollar from the taxpayers!
