Attraction details
Owner description: Maine Maritime Museum is located on a beautiful 20-acre campus on the banks of the Kennebec River in historic Bath, Maine. Indoors, visitors enjoy air-conditioned galleries with exhibits and hands-on activities for all ages. Outdoors, visitors can join a guided tour or stroll through the historic Percy & Small shipyard and see how many of the world's largest wooden sailing ships were built, learn about lobstering in the Maine, enjoy lunch under the towering sculpture of the schooner Wyoming (the largest wooden sailing vessel built in North America), watch wooden boats being built in the Boatshop, or play on a pirate ship. May through October, visitors can get an up-close view of the area's lighthouses and spectacular scenery on daily cruises, learn the story of Bath Iron Works from shipyard insiders, and tour the Victorian-era home of the Donnell shipbuilding family. Open year round.

We visited the Maritime museum during our trip to Maine last week and really enjoyed it. We didn’t take the boat tour, but there was more than enough to see both inside the museum as well as the outside tour of how the wooden ships were built. You should plan on at least a couple of hours to take it all in, and would highly recommend this museum for anyone interested in finding out more about Maine’s maritime history!

Lots to see and take in. Educational exhibits. Wish we had known about the two-day pass and the senior discount. Best part was the lighthouse cruise. Very informative guide.

Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff and volunteers. Cafe available. Tour is included in the admission price. Overflow parking and RV parking is available. Set aside several hours to visit. Boat rides are an additional fee. Membership is available. Air-conditioned museum. Dress appropriately for the outdoors. Save receipt for “free” admission to the museum within the same week. The tour guides and docents are FANTASTIC.
