What's this?



Maine Maritime Museum

Set on a beautiful 20-acre waterfront campus in Bath, Maine, the museum features lighthouse cruises, an historic shipyard, exhibit galleries, kid-friendly activities, an excellent gift shop, and numerous programs, lectures, and events.

Founded in 1962, Maine Maritime Museum is located on the banks of the Kennebec River in “The City of Ships,” Bath, Maine. The museum is dedicated to promoting an understanding and appreciation of Maine’s maritime heritage and culture.

See some of Maine’s most iconic lighthouses from the water on one of our daily cruises. And, get an up-close look at Navy vessels under construction at Bath Iron Works. Indoors, enjoy air-conditioned galleries with exhibits and hands-on activities for all ages. Outdoors, stroll through the country’s only surviving shipyard where large wooden sailing vessels were built. Many of the original shipyard buildings are preserved, giving you a glimpse into the daily lives of the Percy & Small shipbuilders.
