Wonder Mountain Family Fun Park sternly rebuffs boredom with two mini-golf courses and a challenging human maze. Adventurers can negotiate the twisting turns, dead ends, and elevated checkpoints of the Treasure Trap ($5/person for ages 5+) in less than 10 minutes to enter weekly drawings for cash and T-shirts or to outrun overzealous Pac-Men. Alternatively, opt for a round of mini golf ($10/adult; $8/senior or child ages 5–12) on one of two courses strewn with lush foliage, flowing waterfalls, and muttering streams. Send dimpled balls spinning across the Mountain Mania course, recently rebuilt with five new hole layouts, or test your mettle on the Nautical Nightmare course, whose challenging holes may be better suited for teens and adults than youngsters or those who depend on holes-in-one for life force.

Q&A with the Executive Director

In his lifetime, William Lord amassed something of a treasure horde, including artwork, furniture, and articles of business. When he died in 1873, he left behind a fortune considered the greatest in Kennebunk, including several pieces of real estate. In 1936, Lord's old general store building came into the possession of his great-granddaughter, Edith Cleaves Barry. She decided to use the building as a museum, exploring the area's history through the lens of her family's story and possessions. The museum quickly grew to occupy other nearby buildings, all dating from between 1810 and 1860, and their architectural elements and antiques became the centerpiece of Brick Store Museum.

Today, the museum houses exhibits in six galleries spread throughout the buildings. Many of the exhibits feature interactive elements, and all tell the story of regional history, whether through photography, artwork, artifacts, or ghosts who can talk.
