Boothbay Railway Village, Boothbay

History Museum · Specialty Museum
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.

  • It's small. It's cute. It is not an original railroad line, but original pieces. There are some random collections. The Salt and Pepper house is one that is random. My son loves the train. Your train ticket is good for the whole day. The train runs every hour.
  • What a great place to spend your day at! We enjoyed the train ride as well as the museum exhibitions! the items are carefully taken care of and well organized. You will see and learn a lot. Kids love feeding the goats. I personally enjoyed the pavilion with running toy trains- so fun! The place is affordable. You even can come back next week to ride for free if you save your receipt. We enjoyed our visit very much- have made some great memories today. Thank you to all Railway Village staff for making it happen.
