Excellent and very thorough presentation of the deep ship building history along the Coast of Maine right in the shadow of Maine's largest modern yard. Sorry that we couldn't go outdoors to see all the exhibits, but look forward to returning there someday in warmer weather.

I enjoyed the current exhibit on the Portland waterfront and the short video on the tugs that bring the oil tankers into the harbor. The head of that company gave a 30-minute presentation on Peaks Island that I can't recommend highly enough. If you could have him at an event in Bath, it might be a great fund-raiser. He was superb and his slides were outstanding. I especially appreciated his discussion of how he talks to the oil tanker captains, many of whom English is a second language. Also, the description of how to talks to the crew int he tugboat as he himself pilots the oil tanker into the harbor was very revealing.

What You'll Get


Boats have a long history as transportation, recreation, and as loyal household pets that won't object whenever their owners want to dress them in a silly Batman costume. Learn about the history of these sometimes metallic animals with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two adult admission tickets to the Maine Maritime Museum, located in Bath.

Recently featured in the Portland Press Herald, the Maine Maritime Museum envelopes visitors in Maine's rich seafaring history through both permanent and seasonal exhibits on its 20-acre shipyard campus. Fledgling boat aficionados and sea vessel fanatics alike can marvel at the shipyards where some of the world's largest wooden sea vessels were assembled. Learn about modern-day construction of U.S. Navy destroyers, tour 19th-century shipyard buildings, view boat builders hard at work in the boatshop, or behold the metal replica of the Wyoming, the largest wooden sailing ship ever built in the country. From Memorial Day to Columbus Day, visitors can also tour the Victorian-era Donnell House, which was home to a shipbuilder and his family, or take a trolley tour of the Bath Iron Works. Located in the sea-crazed village of Bath, the Maine Maritime Museum is the ideal stop before an afternoon of antique shopping for "Beware of the Y2K" political buttons.
