Penobscot Marine Museum

Penobscot Marine Museum

Penobscot's collection is housed in five different buildings, all dating from the first half of the 19th century. One is furnished with typical 19th century Sea Captain artifacts and furniture.

The Museum's Collection ranges from the indispensable tools of the Mariner to fine marine art. Period costume and other domestic items that families saved is an important part of our vast collection as are boats used on the immense Penobscot Bay, which can be found housed in three buildings on our village grounds.

We hope you enjoy our work.
