Joseph Nicolar wrote about birchbark canoes. George Wasson wrote about the heyday of sailing on the Penobscot River as he summered on the WAVE CREST in Castine Harbor. E.B. White wrote of owning small boats – the FAINT ENDEAVOR, once owned by White, is now exhibited at PMM. Clara Blanchard was a 19th-century rising opera star. Contemporary artist Brian White was inspired by local fishermen. These are only a few of the many artists and authors represented by the collections at the Penobscot Marine Museum. This tour tells the stories of these individuals and uses their own words to connect with the objects and buildings in front of you.

Our talented tour guides will lead you around our beautiful campus, sharing fascinating stories and also allowing you time to visit several exhibits. Tours are $25/family (up to 10 people). Please pre-register. 

Rain or shine. Participants must contact Penobscot Marine Museum before the start time of their scheduled tour for a refund or to reschedule. Email Jeana at [email protected]. No-shows will be charged the full rate.
