Tour five original 19th-century buildings and a full-size replica of the largest sailing vessel ever built, the Wyoming, just minutes from our Maine Maritime Museum hotel.
Start your tour of the Maine Maritime Museum with the two videos that preview the museum’s main exhibits centered around the schooners and lighthouses. Travel four hundred years back in time to the beginning of Maine’s maritime history! The museum exhibits make sure all aspects of life on the coast are showcased, from the wood and steel shipbuilders, to trade and commercial fishing. The national war efforts during World War I have their own exclusive exhibit that details the shipbuilding that took place in Bath.
This isn’t your standard quiet fishing town. Maine’s reach was particularly evident in the 19th and 20th centuries, when they played an important role in domestic and international trade by water.
