On our third trip to Rocklland, my husband and I visited the lighthouse museum. I don't know how we missed it before. It is a remarkable collection of everything related to lighthouses. I highly recommend a visit.

Beautifully laid out and with great descriptions of the different types of lights. We learned why Maine has so many lighthouses. Situated right downtown on the harbor.

Interesting museum with real Light house glass lights on display. Some even looked like large jewels! Inexpensive way to spend a rainly day.

Girlfriend and I Was on way to bar harbor from Boston 3 weeks ago and was trying to visit many lighthouses in Maine (18) total... Decided to stop and check museum out... We thought we would just do a walk through in 15 minutes and leave.... We met an elderly lady who gave us a private tour and it was breathtaking. It was the highlight of our trip learning from her knowledge and personal experience living and maintaining a lighthouse with her family... We personally want to thank you for your eloquence and let everyone know to definantly stop if ur traveling up the coast of Maine.. It's 5$ to get in but leave a donation afterwards...... Its worth it. 5stars
