Museums & Exhibits

Art, History, Maritime & Science Exhibits for Kids and Adults


Two of Maine's biggest lures are lobster and lighthouses, but the state's heritage goes far beyond these icons. The state is home to more than 60 lighthouses, including the oldest in the country, an impressive collection of forts, a fleet of windjammers, and the only surviving maritime signal tower and the last extant herring smokehouse in the United States.

Explore museums and exhibits throughout the state with every interest covered from Maine's rich maritime history to the must see Arts District.
