“covering what covers you”

The Umbrella Cover Museum is dedicated to the appreciation of the mundane in everyday life. It is about finding wonder and beauty in the simplest of things, and about knowing that there is always a story behind the cover.  The Umbrella Cover Museum was founded in 1996 on Peaks Island, Maine by Director and Curator, Nancy 3. Hoffman. Having discovered that she had five or six umbrella covers she didn’t know what to do with, and eventually stealing one from a local department store, she decided to start a museum. The Umbrella Cover Museum is opened seasonally, so please call before planning a visit.

This is really the only thing on Peaks Island unless you're going to a wedding or have a house there. The museum is quirky and charming, just like the island. if you have a few hours you should just walk around and look at all the cool architecture and ocean landscapes. the restaurants aren't bad either! just pay attention to ferry times
