Was informed about this museum when in St. Andrews New Brunswick. Made my way down just to see this place. Glad I did. The museum has plenty of parking space and is located in a nice area away from town. The museum has an array of cars, motorcycles and planes as well as some wagons. There is also an area... More

The museum was our first stop of our trip on the east coast. I found this musem when looking for attraction on trip advisor. It was better than expected. A lot of cars, motocycles, race cars, old planes, etc. We were very surprise when someone came and ask if we want to do a ride. "A ride of ?" In... More

This is a very fun place to visit in Owl's Head. They have old airplanes, steam engines, antique cars, a gypsy caravan, and even stagecoaches! But there is one thing that will make your vacation-- riding in the 1915 Model T! That was an unforgettable experience. The driver was friendly, informative, and entertaining. Definitely stop here! It's well worth the... More

The Owls Head Transportation Museum is a place that has wonderful exhibits of cars, trains, airplanes, engines, and other things associated with transportation. They have many events during the season, and their air show, in my opinion, is one of the best. They usually have some older bi-planes which are interesting to check out. They have an outstanding glider exhibition.... More

This was a fun museum with great period cars. Got to ride the Model T too. I wish there had been a tour of some sort to give a bit more background on some which might have had interesting stories/histories. For kids, it might have also been a better learning opportunity and more fun to have some interactive activities.

This is a fantastic venue just about 3 miles south of Rockland. You'll find way more than you expect here....really, really old cars (dating back to pre-1900), Offenhauser style racers, a few pre-Nascar track cars, and a bunch og MG's. Woodies? Got 'em. Rolls. Yup. Crosleys. ...and more. Aviation enthusiasts won't be disappointed, as this place is actually 'on" an... More

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
