Research

The museum’s library is available for use on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., or by appointment, to research Maine-related vessels, people, maritime businesses, ports, or nautical artifacts. There is no charge for museum members, students, representatives of the press, and other museums and historical societies; all others are required to pay general admission. Appointments are strongly recommended and can be made by e-mail or by calling (207) 443-1316 ext. 336.

To examine artifacts in the museum’s collection you must schedule an appointment with the Registrar.

Regular museum admission fees apply, except for members of Maine Maritime Museum, students, representatives of the press, and staff of other museums and historical societies. For extensive research projects, there is an hourly fee for staff assistance.
