Goals: To help educate the people of Maine about their maritime heritage and the history of Searsport, a town which - a century ago - produced one-tenth of all deep-water shipmasters. The Museum's nine buildings contain many varied exhibits related to the area's maritime past.
Exhibits include navigational instruments, ship models, coastal industries, ship construction tools, and a small craft exhibit. The Museum also offers a diverse collection of marine paintings, an exhibit on the "Challenge of DownEasters," seasonally changing exhibits, and an 8000-volume library.
Year-round educational programming (both in-school and on-site Museum programs); special programs; slide presentations; traveling programs; films and videos; and an educational brochure. The Library is open year-round with a large collection of genealogical materials as well as maritime-related resources.
