“More Information Than we could Absorb”

Maine Lighthouse Museum
Ranked #5 of 44 things to do in Rockland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2016

We really enjoyed the lighthouse museum. Excellent description of Fresnel lenses and what determines the various orders. Good videos about lighthouses. Plan to spend two or three hours if you like lighthouses at all.

Great collection of lighthouse memorabilia and information. Reasonably priced and staffed with friendly people. Beautiful location on the water in downtown Rockland. We enjoyed learning about Maine lighthouse history and the families which staffed them.

This museum has a variety of lighthouse elements from the old to the new. It is in a smaller space than it used to be and you can go through the entire museum in an hour or less. Great for a break from downtown shops. Won't disappoint.

A must visit and see for fans of lighthouses and Maine. It was fun to read about the history of the area and how lighthouses have shaped the area.

We traveled with friends up the coast of Maine trying to see as many lighthouses as possible. They do not disappoint! This and all of the lighthouses are wonderfully accessible and little adventures to us!
