About Us

Founded in 1962, Maine Maritime Museum sits on a beautiful 20-acre campus 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.

Indoors, enjoy air-conditioned galleries with exhibits and hands-on activities for all ages. Into the Lantern: A Lighthouse Experience is a one-of-a-kind immersive exhibit that will give you the sensation of standing at the top of a lighthouse.

Outdoors, stroll through the country’s only surviving shipyard to see where large wooden sailing vessels were once built. Many of the original buildings in our shipyard are preserved, giving you a glimpse into the daily lives of the Percy & Small shipbuilders.The highlight of the yard is the full-size sculpture of the schooner Wyoming, the largest wooden sailing vessel ever built in North America. At the top of the yard, the Victorian-era home of the Donnells, one of Bath’s many shipbuilding families, opens seasonally for tours.

Hop on one of our daily cruises to see some of Maine’s most iconic lighthouses from the water and get an up-close look at Navy vessels under construction at Bath Iron Works.

The museum’s working Boatshop keeps Maine’s wooden boatbuilding traditions alive! Chat with craftspeople at work or participate in the variety of workshops that teach traditional woodworking techniques.
