Someone suggested stopping here on our way from Boston to Bar Harbor - it's two minutes off the interstate, and worth the stop. This used to be the DeLorme R&D center for mapping, and it's now owned by Garmin (since 2016). It's obvious they've radically...More

It is a quick stop, right off the highway, but it is really quite worth the 20 minutes extra it will add to your drive. It is the largest rotating globe, and it is built to accurately rotate like the Earth actually does. It is...More

It's a place for a quick stop, look at the big glob and go "aaaaahhhhhh" but that's about it. Not bad but and it's free but hardly a must see on your Maine adventure.

Had to stop and visit Eartha before heading over to shop in Portland. We had a lot of fun taking pictures.

Accidentally found out about this when looking into LL Bean up in Freeport. It's a quick 15-20 min stop. Something fun and different. Go up to the third floor for the best view.

We stopped on the way to Bar Harbor. There's nothing to see but the globe - the store is closed - but the globe itself is impressive and interesting to see. Worth 15 minutes, wouldn't drive especially for it unless you really into these things....More

Eartha is a three-dimensional scale model of our earth that is in the lobby of the DeLorme Building. Eartha rotates and revolves just as Earth does, only Eartha moves on a cantilevered arm. The employee told us that it measures over 41 feet in diameter...More

This is a great idea is a tourist trap for a world mapping company. Put a huge freaking globe in your lobby. Unfortunately, the map store is now closed. Enjoy the clean restrooms!

How little did we all know? Indeed back to the atlas. This globe for sure is worthy of your time and we enjoyed immensely. There are 3 floors so you can see different parts of our world - so much sea water. There is no...More

Free! It is in the lobby of an office building, so you just go during work hours. They are very accommodating to visitors coming in to see the globe.

You would have to contact them directly as I am not sure if they are open on Holidays. Check on line with Garmin as they are the company that owns this store.
