Get to Know Your Town

Start with an informative walking tour

Bar Harbor has a rich history. Our residents are proud of the stories and culture we've built and want to show it off. That's why Bar Harbor Village Improvement Association established the Museum in the Streets. This program features 26 placards and photographs throughout town. You can start at any point to explore our town's history, all by foot. You can also find our 20 newer panels added in 2019 on either side of town.
