Celebrate The Pine Tree State’s Coastal Heritage At The Historic Maine Maritime Museum
We have a long history with the Atlantic Ocean here in Maine. Settlers from across the pond made their way here long ago. In fact, Popham was technically the first settlement on the mainland predating Jamestown. The settlement, however, did not make it, and so the story was lost to history. The fact remains though, that we have a long history of our coastal towns and our fisherman trades. We have a lot to owe to those who came before us to make our state what it is today. So in pursuit of maintaining the history for all to enjoy, the Maine Maritime Museum was born. Step inside and learn about our relationship with the sea.
The Maine Maritime Museum is fun for the whole family. Filled with history, lessons, and hands-on experiences this is a museum you will not want to miss. Make sure to check the Maine Maritime Museum website for more information and until then, happy sailing.
My name is Chris Dodge and I love to bring my family along for many adventures. We love to inspire others to get outside too. We have a whole YouTube Channel dedicated to it called Adventuring in the Moment. With videos or writing, I try to bring the best that the outdoors has to offer.
