When you visit the Museum you’ll learn about how technologies like steam engines and the automobile changed life along the coast of Maine between 1850 and 1950. In addition to the opportunity to ride in a vintage coach behind a 100 year old steam locomotive, the Museum also occasionally offers rides in one of our Ford Model Ts. Two of our most popular attractions are the resident goats who delight visitors of all ages with their antics. From a display of hundreds of salt & pepper shakers to a collection of engines that powered everything from small boats to whole factories, there truly is something for everyone in your family here.

Throughout the season a wide variety of special events are hosted on the Village Green from vintage ball games to car shows and family festivals. The Museum is also a unique location for wedding ceremonies and receptions.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time here! Great place, fun train ride, and the model railway exhibit is stunning. Everyone was incredibly friendly - especially Anthony at the model railway building. It was wonderful to get to talk to him and pick up a locomotive and gondola car as honeymoon keepsakes. I hope to come here again!
  • We loved visiting Railway Village Museum during our visit to Maine. We brought our dog, Coda, with us and she enjoyed the train ride! Maureen, who worked the ticket counter, was very friendly and helpful. She took time to explain the grounds to us and she loved getting to know Coda. You can really take your time here and walk and explore. We had a lovely time and we would love to come back!
