  • A wonderful Museum to learn about the life of General Joshua Chamberlain. Wonderful guided tours, where you can ask questions about anything involving his life. The home is a great overview of his life as a professor, an officer in the Army, and as governor of the state of Maine. I highly recommend going to this Museum if you wish to learn more about him.
  • If you are a diverse of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain's, then this is a must see for you. The house, period artifacts, and family pieces are all spectacular and the guides bring to live the house museum. All so much information to a person of such good character and one who did so much for his country. This is a wonderful place to visit!!x😀😃
