Marshall Point Lighthouse is an easy trip from our Boothbay Harbor vacation base and well worth the ride. As North Atlantic lighthouses go, it's small and quaint, but it's message is powerful. There is a memorial to lost fishermen. The adjacent home festures an excellent little museum. The lighthouse itself features an easy walking bridge which brings you to the... More

This is a small museum, but packed with info and history. The volunteer staff members are knowledgable and an endless source of history. Not on 'the beaten path', but well worth the drive.

Our friends parents have a home in Port Clyde so we stay every Fourth of July week. We love this Lighthouse and Museum. You can walk right out onto the lighthouse and the rocks surrounding, which is where we find a ton of sea glass- I even found Cranberry Colored Sea Glass here ( it was a very small piece,... More

My wife was on the lighthouse tour kick. We drove to Port Clyde from Damariscotta area after a brief stop in Port Clyde. What impressed me the most is you can walk out to the lighthouse as well as the memorial to the commercial fishermen who have given their lives doing what they loved ( fishing). This was really moving... More

This is an excellent museum with logbooks of anything pertaining to the area, lobstermen, lobstering, the sea. Beautiful setting by the Lighthouse and sea. The displays are mostly donated which speaks well if a community proud of their heritage.

A beautiful drive to one of the prettiest places on the Maine coast. Great little museum that provides history on the locals. A wonderful family tree made with lobster buoys. Take a slow cruise down Marshall Point Rd and take in the views and the fresh air. You will be glad you did.

We arrived in the evening and it was very quiet. The light was fading but it was light enough for fotos. It seemed very magical calm and quiet, we had the place to our selves no tourists it was great very atmospheric. The museum was closed but it didn't matter it was lovely to have the lighthouse all to ourselves.... More

First let me say that this lighthouse is lovely and very well kept with the most helpful museum staff I've ever met. The elderly gentleman inside the museum was very knowledgeable and very nice. He explained about the big explosion that took port Clyde nearly off the map. He showed us different sailor knots and showed us photos of blue... More

Pretty lighthouse with a decent museum and gift shop in the lightkeeper's house. This lighthouse was less crowded than some of the others that we visited, and you could ramble around on the rocks below or sit on a picnic table and watch the boats sail by.
