We walked from our cottage to the lighthouse and were disappointed that the museum was closed. It doesn't post the hours, but we did return in the afternoon after checking the hours online. Friendly staff, and very knowledgeable.

We had to dodge hundreds of cyclists during a bike rally to get to Marshall Point Lighthouse, which was one of their stops. It's a very scenic drive through some nice towns and villages, and the view from the lighthouse is pretty. All that being said, I would have to rank it behind Pemaquid Point and Owls Head in terms...

Awesome views. Cute little museum and gift shoppe. Plan on spending less than an hour exploring. The views are amazing and very picture worthy!

As another reviewer pointed out, it is about a 30 minute drive each way down the peninsula to reach the lighthouse. Not very crowded however, we were disappointed that the museum was not open (we were there mid day on a Monday). Beautiful views and well worth the drive!

I have seen many photos of this location, primarily at Red Lobster locations, and had to see it while on vacation. It is a beautiful setting, and the pictures that can be taken here are tremendous. It lacks the crowds that are at many other lighthouses in the area, has a very nice museum/gift shop, and is free. I did... More

Beautiful, picturesque spot to walk around. A definite must-see if you're in the area on a sunny day. Small free parking lot and there's a small museum/gift shop on the grounds. This is the lighthouse featured in the movie "Forrest Gump", for those who like the movie.

A half dozen artists were there today to paint one of the prettiest spots I've seen. The lighthouse (as seen in Forest Gump) is not large but the surroundings are breathtaking. Every angle you turn produces yet another postcard view.

My husband and I were in a restaurant in Maine when we saw photo of the Marshall Lighthouse and had to see it for ourselves. It was worth the drive!

This is a unique lighthouse built at the end of a wooden walkway. Not real tall and you cannot go in it. There is also a small museum on the property but it is closed on Sunday's until 1 pm so we were unable to go inside it. Nonetheless, it was a worthwhile visit.

We were here three years ago and fell in love with the place. The lighthouse is amazing and the museum is very educational with a lot of the history of the lighthouse. We have it on our must do list every time we come to the area.
