History up close and personal
Oct 2019
We stopped by the museum as a spur of the moment stop. We ended up staying more than an hour. There is so much to see and so much to read in the museum, an hour didn't do it justice. The history contained here is amazing.. I especially appreciated the 'Thresher" wall and all the information contained there.

Nice Local History Museum
Oct 2019
A great way to learn about the local maritime history of Maine. In addition to the maritime history, there was a recreated room of what is was like to live in early Maine. We really enjoyed our time there...

If you have any interest in maritime, sailing or just want to know a little about the rich history of the waterways and how New England played a part in our history then this is a stop you must make while in the area.

"Small but Mighty"
Aug 2019
From the outside this appears to be a small, simple place but once inside you realize that it is quite extensive with a large selection of well-displayed items and exhibits. It is nicely kept and very clean and it covers many aspects of the Naval Yard, the manufacture of submarines during WWII, as well as covering much history of the area. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and extremely well informed. We felt that the price of admission was more than reasonable for the two hours we spent meandering through this museum.

Really enjoyed the museum
Jul 2018 • Family
It was worth the stop to learn about the area before we explored. It made us appreciate a lot of the nuances we would have missed (ie Lady Pepperrell mansion) we watched the short video (highly recommend). Even with teenagers, the museum scavenger hunt kept them engaged and they were able to appreciate the sites of the town more after having been there.

I found this an excellent place to learn the amazing history of the area. They have an excellent 20 minute film that really tells you the key players and events that happened in the area. Plus the exhibits are well done and worth seeing.

Nice Museum with Friendly, Helpful Staff
Jul 2018 • Couples
Interesting artifacts inside dealing with both the history of the town and naval history. We especially liked the ship's wheel to the USS Franklin, the uniform worn on the USS Constitution, and models of HMS Victory and John Paul Jones' Ranger. The man there was very helpful with selecting and providing directions to our next stop.
