Visit Maine Maritime Museum
Discover Maine’s diverse maritime culture – from lobstering to lighthouses — on the grounds of a former shipyard where the largest wooden ship the world had ever seen was launched in 1909. Located on the banks of the Kennebec River in historic Bath, the “City of Ships,” our scenic 20-acre campus offers indoor and outdoor exhibits and activities, daily lighthouse cruises, live demonstrations, and hands-on fun for the whole family. Stop by the Boatshop to see wooden boats being constructed using traditional techniques; visit with the blacksmith as they work in the forge; explore the original shipyard buildings. Whether you’re a history buff, a curious kid, or you just want to view Maine’s beautiful coastline from the water, you’ll find it all at Maine Maritime Museum.
