You have to take a ride in the Model T Ford. It's a hoot. I liked the mix of eras and modes. This is a well loved museum for a reason. A definite Rockland must-do.

I'll be honest, I was NOT looking forward to coming here. I have about zero interest in cars, trucks, engines, or planes. I mainly went because my five year old boy loves all those things. However, this museum makes even the most ambivalent attendee interested (and my kid was absolutely enthralled). There are working displays and active restorations of cars... More

THIS WAS more than I expected. I have been to old truck shows before but this was much more, the museum has power, flight, racing, bicycles, fire trucks, wagons and much more

This was a great museum, maybe would be better in a large group since there are demonstrations, a lot of working displays.. ( but no one was there for us) it was quiet when we went. However, we were taken out for a ride in the model T by a super nice guy volunteer(didn't get his name), and Bob in... More

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.
