This is a place that I believe gets over looked. The Boothbay Region has rich history and this museum is full of interesting information. We loved it. You should go here.

I really enjoyed this museum. You get a feel for what the town was like in the past. I took the trolley to the museum but I missed it the first time around. I had to ask the driver to drop me off there.

There's quite a bit of interesting history to be absorbed at the BRHSM. Worth the stop.
