Visit to the Maine Maritime Museum

The Maine Maritime Museum is located alongside the beautiful Kennebec River in Bath, Maine. The museum traces the maritime heritage and shipbuilding tradition of Maine and the surrounding region. The traditional wooden craft in the museum stand in contrast to the modern ships being built in the nearby Bath Iron Works.
