A Maritime History of Maine
Our core exhibit gives the visitor a broad overview of Maine maritime history. Our core exhibit uses more than 240 objects to give the viewer a general idea of Maine maritime history. It focuses on the major themes of earning a living on the coast, fishing, coastal trades, wooden and steel shipbuilding, war, coastal travel, and recreation. Included in this exhibition is our presentation on Bath Iron Works and our best model of a destroyer, as well as material relating to the Maine exports of lumber, lime, ice, and granite.
