1906 Schooner Mary E
Mary E is occasionally away from the museum serving as an ambassador of Maine’s maritime heritage. Mary E will be away from the dock on the following dates, but you can see her at these off-site events:
Portland Schooner Fest, June 21-24; Boothbay Windjammer Days, June 26-28.
Step aboard the historic schooner Mary E and learn about her amazing history. Originally built in Bath in 1906 as a fishing schooner, she has also served as a cargo carrier, a passenger-carrying windjammer, and even rumored to have been a rum runner. Mary E was restored in the museum's historic shipyard in 2017/2018. Our skilled docents will share stories of her past and discuss the recent restoration efforts that will preserve her for future generations.
On deck tours run daily, Memorial Day to Columbus Day, 10 am to 4 pm.
