“Home of EARTHA. Don't miss it!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a delightful place not to be missed by tourist and Mainers, alike. The Delorme Store is truly one of a kind. You will find everything you need in the way of road maps, marine charts, highly detailed U.S. And state atlases, international travel guides, globes and much mush more. And for the kids, a huge variety of educational, science and just plain fun toys and books. Finally, there's EARTHA, the world's largest globe of, what else, the earth. It stands more than three storeys tall and is a wonder to behold! So if you're headed to Yarmouth, or just passing through, jump of exit 17 on I-295 and visit.

“Fun stop!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stopped at the information center across the street, and happened on DeLorme by chance. What a great find! I love maps, and this was pleasure overload. Great place to pick up souvenirs that don't induce eye rolls, too.

“Stop. Don't pass by.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have passed DeLorme so many times on our trip north to Houlton. We finally stopped by. As a previous poster noted, the rest rooms are clean. The gift shop is very interesting. Found some cool books on places to visit in Maine. There are benches on each floor to rest on if you need a break. Go up to the third floor to see the whole globe from the top down.

“MUST visit”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

The largest globe in the world is housed here. The finest map store in the word. Many things to do/see in Yarmouth, but you must stop by the Map Store.

“Not to be missed: EARTHA”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Probably the most fascinating map store in the country: maps of the world, states, cities and regions. Nautical and astronomical charts. And that's not all. Great toys and gadgets for kids of all ages. And the 'hugest' (three storey) globe of the earth that rotates: EARTHA!
