Maine Maritime Museum
AAA Editor Notes
Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington St., is on a 20-acre site of a 19th-century shipyard where large wooden sailing ships were constructed and launched. In five original shipyard buildings, visitors learn about the process of building a wooden schooner. A highlight is the life-size sculpture of the Wyoming, reputedly the largest sailing ship built in the United States. The Maritime History Building contains paintings, ship models, displays of ship artifacts, photographs and video presentations. The lobstering exhibit describes the development of one of the state's leading economic activities.

In season, visitors can visit the Bath Iron Works to see modern U.S. Navy destroyers under construction, then take a trolley tour of historic Bath; glimpse up to 10 lighthouses on a boat cruise from the Long Reach area of the Kennebec River and surrounding waters; or peek into the Victorian-era life of the Bath family at the William T. Donnell House.

Note: The entrance is under construction until spring 2020; the museum remains open.
