Stanley Subaru and the Abbe Museum have gotten together to make all the terrain of Maine available to our guests and all the history, too. We are partnering throughout April to provide our guests this window into part of Maine's culture!
When you purchase a full, premium, or signature detail in the month of April, we will buy you a membership to the Abbe Museum
The Abbe Museum is a museum of Wabanaki art, history, and culture. There are two locations — one in downtown Bar Harbor on Mt Desert Street (by the Village Green) and one at Sieur de Monts Spring in Acadia National Park. Founded in 1926, The Abbe Museum opened at Sieur de Monts Spring in 1928 as a private collection of early Native American artifacts found around Frenchman Bay. Today, the Abbe Museum is the first (and only!) Smithsonian Affiliate in the state!
Children touring the museum
The Abbe Museum, named for Dr. Robert Abbe whose private collection started the museum, showcases Wabanaki culture, art, and history. The Wabanaki are a confederacy of Nations of the four federally recognized tribes in Maine — Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, and Maliseet. The Wabanaki also includes several bands of the Abenaki tribe, who are located primarily in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Quebec.
The Abbe Museum has a great permanent collection, engaging exhibits, and is a fantastic part of Down East Maine. We hope all our guests get to enjoy it!
A full detail will get our guests a seasonal membership. Seasonal membership grants free access to the Abbe Museum July, August, September, and October; a 10% discount in the Abbe gift shop; and reduced fees on special programming for the member!

The People of the First Light exhibit
Great! So the Abbe Museum is a particularly valuable part of Down East, but what are the details of the details? We are offering complimentary memberships on three details: full, premium, and signature. You don't have to have a Subaru to get a detail!
What's in a full detail?
A full detail involves vacuuming seats, carpets, and floor mats; cleaning the windows, mirrors, dashboard, small storage (cup holders, center console), shampooing carpets; cleaning the cargo area; hand wash; chamois dry; clean tires; clean rims; tire shine; clean wheel wells; wash door jambs; clean plastic trim; condition plastic and rubber trims; polish; and wax.
What's in a premium detail?
A premium detail involves everything in a full detail as well as steam cleaning the interior as needed; shampooing seat surfaces; carpet spot and stain removal; cleaning and conditioning leather seats; paint restoration; detailing logos and trim; and removing bugs and tar.
What's in a signature detail?
The signature detail involves everything already listed AND clay bar and triple buff that go above and beyond to protect your vehicle's exterior.
(If you've never heard of clay barring before, don't worry. Most haven't! Clay barring happens between the wash and the wax. It removes contaminants from your vehicle's paint — brake dust, dirt and salt kicked up in the winter, and anything abrasive and small enough to be stuck in your paint so much that it can't get washed away with a normal wash. It takes some time because it's a pretty intensive process, but it makes a huge difference for the longevity of your paint and for rust prevention.)
