Maritime culture is as vast as the oceans that define it. Maine’s maritime history alone reaches all corners of the high seas, as Maine-built ships traveled around the globe from the South Pacific to the Arctic Ocean. The symbols of maritime culture are often grand; many objects in the Maine Maritime Museums collection astound simply through their enormous scale. This exhibition attempts to do the opposite, to present the vast maritime history through the delicate, the detailed, and the tiny. This is the story of Maine’s maritime history in miniature.
