BATH, Maine, Sept. 9, 2014…Maine Maritime Museum in Bath has once again been named one of the “Best Maritime Museums in the World,” the second time the museum has made such a list in the past two years.

            In an article in the September 2014 issue of Destinations Travel magazine, MMM was named as one of the 15 best maritime museums in the world. In 2013, the museum was selected as one of the 10 best maritime museums in the world by Maritime, an international maritime industry publication. To see the entire article, please visit

            The 15 museums named by Destinations Travel are the most notable maritime museums around the world, including:

            The introduction to the list said that each of the selected museums had earned its place on the list either because of its uniqueness, its amazing collections or its significance (to maritime history).  The article also noted that, “These Museums are not just for those who love all that is maritime related, they are a wonderful family-travel destination.”

            “To continue to be recognized as one of the world’s best is inspiring for our staff, trustees, volunteers and supporters,” says the museum’s Executive Director Amy Lent.  “If you’re judged by the company you keep, MMM is certainly in a rarefied group. We are honored and hope that the people of Maine are proud have a museum of this caliber in the state.”
