The Owls Head Museum covers the history of transportation in its widest sense and has some very rare exhibits. My own favourites were the early aircraft on display. The red Fokker biplane which flew to Tokyo in the 1920's was of particular interest.

Been to Owl's Head any times for festivals and celebrations but this is the first quiet time for a visit. The collection of cars, motorcycles and planes is truly amazing. You can easily spend the whole day there!

Banish the idea of a stodgy old museum. This place is tastefully laid out with great displays and narratives. One can see old motorcycles, airplanes and cars, along with visiting the restorative areas. Well worth the money for a trip down memory lane.

Excellent display and chronology of autos and aircraft of the area and time. Uniquely, ALL of the vehicles and planes displayed run and can be driven or flown. A must see for car buffs.
