Maine Maritime Museum

243 Washington Street
Bath, ME 04530
Maine Maritime Museum, Bath — The Maritime History Building houses the Exhibit Galleries and Research Library, as well as our riverfront meeting and dining facility, Long Reach Hall. 

The exhibit "A Maritime History of Maine" illustrates six timeless themes of coastal Maine - living on land & sea, fishing, local trade, world trade, wooden shipbuilding, and recreation on Maine waters. Here you can practice sailors' knots on a knot-rail, and heave away at the capstan to hoist a heavy load. Galleries filled with changing exhibits explore many aspects of the history and human experience of maritime Maine. 

Most visitors spend an hour or more exploring these remarkable windows on our maritime history. And reliving history can make you hungry, so bring a picnic and plan some time to relax on the sundeck of Long Reach Hall to enhance your experience!
