Penobscot Marine Museum brings Maine’s maritime history to life on a campus of beautiful historic buildings in the charming seacoast village of Searsport, Maine. Exhibits throughout the campus tell unique stories of ship captains and their families, the industries of Penobscot Bay, global maritime trade, and today’s fisheries.
The Museum develops changing seasonal and traveling exhibits, and conducts educational outreach throughout Maine. In addition to exhibits, the museum is home to over 300,000 historic photographs, an extensive collection of maritime artifacts and archives, and a maritime history research library. Museum offices, photo archives, and research library are open year-round. Exhibits are open Memorial Day weekend through the third Sunday in October.
