Historic Boat Collection
MMM's collection of small craft number more than 140 iconic Maine built or Maine related boats from a rare antique birchbark canoe to Andrew Wyeth's Friendship sloop. The boats are housed in several buildings and included in various exhibits around the museum campus so viewing them all takes plenty of time and lots of determination, but many are easy to view. During the summer season, a member of the curatorial staff conducts a "behind-the-scenes" guided tour of the collection emphasizing those boats visitors wish to see. The tour fee includes museum admission.
