While the museum isn't really as large as the Trip Advisor pic would have you believe(exhibits in 2 rooms on main floor only), we packed a lot of information in about the hour we were there. The volunteers were quite helpful and knowledgeable, the restored Stanley Steamers were very nicely restored. It was a little chilly inside the day we visited, but it is an old building and I'm sure heating is $$. Learned quite a bit.

Twin brothers, the Stanley boys of Kingfield, had the genius market cornered! Not only did they invent and manufacture Steam powered automobiles from the 1890’s to 1926 but to also invent dry plate photography and the original photographic air brush! The museum itself has a half dozen perfectly restored steam powered cars. Jewels of American ingenuity!

We were in town to attend the POPs concert and needed to kill some time. This was a nice surprise. Very, very interesting. Our guide was knowledgeable and well spoken.

A friend told us about this Museum and we visited while staying in Rangeley for a week. The Museum is very small and only has 5 Old steam engine cars. The cars are beautiful! There’s also a section of old photos taken by Stanley’s wife who was a photographer and artist. Entrance is only $4 per person, $3 for seniors, over 65. Worth every penny. If you are in the area, this Museum is well worth a visit.
