The Telling Room has gone virtual until it feels safe for our staff, volunteers, teaching artists, students and community to gather. Like many of you, we've been actively following the progression of COVID-19 in Maine, in other parts of the country and across the globe. In the interest of following guidance from local, state and federal authorities regarding measures that best promote public health, we have suspended our daily in-person operations until further notice. Please visit our Programs page for more information and to learn about our virtual programming.


The Telling Room is at 225 Commercial Street in Suite 201, one floor above Vervacious and the Old Port Wine Merchants, across the street from the Japanese Restaurant, Sapporo.

  • If you're hoofing it, from Monument Square, take either Center Street or Temple/Union Street down toward the waterfront, and hang a left at Commercial.
  • If you're on the Metro bus, the 8 stops at the Casco Bay Ferry Terminal, just a few blocks down Commercial from us.  Or you can take ANY of the city bus lines (1-8) and get off at Monument Square and walk from there.
