We stopped in on a rainy Saturday morning-- and stayed for about 4 hours. The museum's website made the place sound good, yet my expectations were exceeded when I got in the door. The staff is very personable and accommodating, and are genuinely interested in the subject matter. A lot of the stuff there is run-- We caught an exhibition... More

Great museum with lots of cool cars and vehicles. We got to ride in a 1915 model T the day we visited. Great fun!

Great transportation museum for people into planes, cars and motorcycles. High quality facilities and collection and surprised to see this in coastal Maine. As if the exhibits weren’t enough, when do you get a chance to ride in a Model T Ford! A must see for anyone into antique transportation.

A good stop on a dreary day while vacationing. If you enjoy classic cars and old planes this is a fun stop to see collectibles and history. They do have new exhibits and have good information about the make of the cars/planes etc.

Everything they do here is first class. I would generally be disinclined to visit something called a "transportation museum", but this is an exceptional example of a dedicated group of people who want to exhibit quality antiques in a clean and well-lighted space. Fantastic airplanes, cars.motorcycles, and theme displays year-round. Don't miss it.

An extremely well done museum (Smithsonian Quality) with terrific personnel and a great variety of historical autos and planes. It's minutes away from the Berry Manor Inn.

This museum is one of the finest car museums I've ever seen. First of all it's in the middle of basically nowhere and looking at it from the outside you'd never know what jewels are inside. There are so many pristine cars and planes that you can be overwhelmed. The old motorcycles were very cool to see and some of... More

The Owls Head Museum is an unexpected gem. Located at the Owls Head airport, the facility for Rockland, it features a stunning and eclectic range of cars, motorcycles and aircraft. As a motoring and aviation enthusiast I could have spent much of the day admiring the extremely well curated collection. Unusually, visitors are allowed access to the automotive and aviation... More

What a gem of a museum right here in Owls Head Maine. The car collection is wonderful, but there's so much more like the fire engines and airplanes and motorcycles, and also special exhibits they have on a fairly regular basis. I've been to the museum many times and it seems to improve all the time. They have a nice... More

Very nice selection of old time vehicles, planes, bikes, engines, fire trucks. Many of the collection are still in running order. replica of the wright brothers flight craft. Well with the price of admission.
