Finding this "hidden jewel"

Cited as "A fun, short stop on the way to the Kittery malls," the Kittery Museum — with its ample parking and easy access — is the perfect place to begin your stay.

We are located just north of the Kittery Traffic Circle.

From I-95, take Exit 2.
      Off the ramp, turn right onto Route 236 South.
Go around the Kittery traffic circle...
      Exit to Route 1 North (Kittery Mall Rd).
The Museum is on your right, beside Route 1.
      And yes, the outlets are up the road a piece.
