Lots of local history and artifacts inside.

Staffed by locals that really know the history of this area. Nice folks. Old land grant maps, an outstanding arrowhead collection, everything you want to know about lobstering.

Gift shop and fort here with a grassy area for picnicking - beautiful views of the ocean -- very quiet and out of the way - a great place to spend an afternoon.

Take a WALK from the bustle of the docks out to Marshall Point, where Forest Gump notably ended his cross-country trek. Sit and breathe and rest: watch the lobster boats rumble by, the cutters criss cross and even a schooner sail by. Then go into the FREE museum to learn about two hundred years of life along the coast: fishing,... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Marshall point lighthouse museum. It was nice that you could drive right up to the keepers house museum and see the lighthouse from the car. Most of the other lighthouses were a walk from the car and not accessible at all. While this isn't wheel chair friendly, if can walk short distances you can... More

The museum itself was not open on the morning we visited but there was a low-lying summer fog so the foghorn was blowing. We walked out to the lighthouse and had a big of a view of the coastline. It is a beautiful area. Afterwards we drove around the corner to Port Clyde and had coffee at the new Squid... More

We took a quick stop here and we're too late for the museum, but we got some good pictures and got to go right up to the lighthouse! Very well maintained park!

One you navigate the half mile of one-lane road the park area is wonderful. The views are stunning and the area is so peaceful and far from the daily grind. Bring your picnic and relax. Very nice

This lighthouse is certainly off the beaten path, but is worth visiting. It's run by volunteers, and has small museum & gift shop, but is far better than some which offer nothing besides a picture. The volunteers are extremely helpful a,d knowledgeable. The museum has a display of miniature lobster bouys (assigned to particular fishermen, and the local church made... More
