360° Gallery: Maine Maritime Museum

We got up to Maine to climb up Mt. Washington and on the day just before our climb we visited the Maine Maritime Museum.

I did not realize that Maine had one of the busiest ports in the world and specialized in ship building to a degree that few even know exists. In fact, the museum is a fantastic place to take a tour with authentic pieces of maritime history, working models including a steam engine, and a homage to one of the largest wooden ships ever constructed in the United States. visits the Maine Maritime Museum – Spherical Image – RICOH THETA

The tour is diverse and interactive. You can walk around outside where historic ships were constructed, see scale models of what the area looked like inside, take a step into the control room of a ship, send and receive radio signals, and see incredible scale models of ships from the greatest era of wooden vessels in history.

There is LOTS to see and these three photos are just to show you what you can expect. If you’re in Maine, drop in and then get some delicious coffee up the hill. You’ll drive by a military construction yard and might spot one of the newest Navy destroyers that we aren’t allowed to talk about. visits the Maine Maritime Museum – Spherical Image – RICOH THETA
