There are no ship to tour just a very nice museum with multiple buildings each showing a different segment of the ship building process.
We drove over from Camden because historic small boats were listed in three buildings of the MMM. To my disappointment, two of those buildings were locked and an employee did not know why. The one that was open was quite substandard compared to the Searsport Maritime Museum. The model boats, images, and wood carvings in the main building were quite... More
Wonderful grounds to walk around to see many different historic buildings about the process of wooden boat building at the turn of the 19th to 20th century. The sculptural frame of the Wyoming is huge! We'll need to go back in the summer to take a guided tour and a boat trip.
We arrived in the afternoon at this attraction, should have planned better. It is similar to Mystic Sea Port, lots of motel boats, some real boats, boat building, boat preservation. My 7 year old was too young to appreciate most of it, but reading is difficult for him, so trying to pick out the most interesting things to read to... More
We stumbled on this attraction when we were in Bath - I caught sight of the Wyoming sculpture and remembered seeing it in Yankee magazine. The museum was open, but we did not realize it was not "completely" open. There were a number of houses that were closed (the large home, the lobster exhibit and the second housing of old... More
This was a museum that even my 5 year old grandson enjoyed. A real primer on the building of large schooners. This museum is very informative and even set up to show how large those ships really were. it is right next to the Bath Ship yards where the newest generation of US Navy destroyers are being built. The staff... More
The museum is well-kept, with plenty of informative displays inside the main building. While this part of the museum may be the most informative, it is also fairly static and will not retain the interest of children or, for that matter, adults who are not overly interested to start with. So needless to say, the other half was a little... More
Didn't know what to expect inside this kind of museum. Though I'm far from a "sailor" in any sense of the word, I still was fascinated by all that goes into a seafaring life. This museum is interesting, informative, very well laid-out and houses really beautiful things. I thoroughly enjoyed my time inside, and out, at this facility. I recommend... More
Missing the train was the best thing I could have done! I had really come to see the railway but I had come the wrong day of the week on a tight schedule, so wandering round the info at the railway station/Info Office, I found details of this museum. This Maritime Museum is a total triumph. Good signage, great parking,... More
The curated space holds a treasure trove of interesting artifacts. The on-the-water trips provide an excellent opportunity to see and appreciate Maine islands and lighthouses. The Bath Ironworks tour is mind boggling and the hands-on carpentry classes are fun for couples.
