Opening May 23, 2024

New core exhibit 

Explore key examples from the Penobscot Marine Museum collection that demonstrate the lineage of the boats that bring our state’s iconic catch to the table. This exhibit features four types of vessels that showcase early designs: the dory, peapod, Moosabec Reach Boat, and Friendship Sloop. Displayed alongside these full-sized boats, are boat plans, photographs, and model boats to illustrate the internal structure of the lobsterboats we see hauling traps today.
