Visitor Centre

No visit to the Park is complete without a stop at our Visitor Centre. Our guides will be happy to share their knowledge of the Park and answer any questions you might have.


Visitors are welcomed to the Park in the Edmund S. Muskie Visitor Centre, where panels, displays, and a short video interpret the Roosevelt story from the time Franklin Roosevelt and his parents first visited Campobello through his battle with polio, his presidency, and the establishment of the Park. Guides respond to informational requests and sell a limited number of souvenirs.
