If you like really old autos, motorcycles and related history, you need to visit the Seal Cove Auto Museum in Tremont, Maine. This is a wonderful small collection of restored and unrestored autos and motorcycles from about 1895 to 1925. Many have won prizes at various concours d'elegance around the country. Included are Stanley steamers, early electric vehicles as well... More

A visit to the museum was a special event for the Destroyer USS ORLECK DD 886 Association reunion that we just concluded. What a place! What beautiful vintage vehicles. What fun we had when they treated our group to rides of 4 different antique vehicles. The day was beautiful and all the volunteers were so nice to our people. Rainy... More

Some of these cars are actually priceless. Some of these cars are one of a kind. The beauty of these cars along with the history and background are absolutely must see to any true lover of the automobile. If you're in Maine, anywhere near Mt. Desert Island don't miss this experience. Admission is very reasonable.

We decided to go to this museum on a whim. No expectations or research. The museum is medium sized focusing on focusing on brass era cars, motorcycles and bicycles. The quality of the cars is superb. There are cars here you may not get to see at any other museum. The staff is very friendly and informative. We spent over... More

This museum has an extensive collection of beautifully restored antique cars, including electric, steam-powered and gasoline powered vehicles. Some of them are one of a kind. We found it fascinating. Museum personnel have some interesting stories to tell about the cars, too. It's worth making the drive out to Seal Cove.

Wonderful auto museum focused on the beginning of auto industry with many beautiful old cars. I didn't know too much about the start and really enjoyed learning who was involved at the very beginning..how much the cost, their speed, etc. I highly recommend visiting this auto gem!

This was an unplanned stop and visit, whilst driving around Mount Desert Island, and totally worthwhile. Not only is it the best early car collection we have ever seen, but it is the most educational and thoughtful auto exhibit I have ever seen. One not only learns about the cars on display, but about the social and economic background during... More

The cars start out just before 1900 and I think the latest I saw was a 1927 Ford Model A. The also had a small group of motorcycles that was very interesting. The people were very friendly and even let us go into the shop where they were preparing two cars to go to a show. The museum is in... More
