This one does not disappoint, small but just looking at the old glass housings and the way the light plays through them is always so beautiful

Not sure what I expected, but more than I got. The museum shares a space with the local Chamber of Commerce and is a good spot to get information on the area and things to do. The Maritime Museum is off to the side and contains many artifacts and exhibits but felt disjointed to me. There didn’t seem to be a flow to tie the facts and facets together. There was an interesting and informative video to view, and the views from the outside deck were nice. Seems to me this needs a professional re-do.

Detailed displays of light technology, fog horns, lighthouse locations, purpose and life. Interesting for a range of ages. Parking available nearby. Several maps and models of the Maine lighthouses.

So worth taking a tour through the history and artifacts found at the Maine Lighthouse Museum. The display is fantastic and the gift shop and gallery here is a bargain rather than a tourist trap.

It’s closed on Monday but that is no where on the website or anywhere else. It’s also in the same building as the Chamber of Commerce. They were frustrated with having to deal with the people coming to the museum and it being closed on Monday without it being changed on the website. So we drove 40 miles for nothing!!
