  • A jewel of mid-coast Maine. If you're a fan of things with motors and engines and wheels and wings, this place is for you. Their annual program of events and functions is always engaging and interesting with most of the summer series of weekends being "must attend" if you're any sort of enthusiast. Love this place and the staff, too!
  • Wow good. I wasn't expecting much for a somewhat rural located transportation museum. I am pretty wowed by this place. Amazing cars, beautiful WW1 vintage aircraft that still fly! Great place for kids with stuff that even little ones can touch and play with. And just when I was pretty certain this was one of the coolest museums I had been to they made an announcement that they were actually going to start up the old engines to show how they work. And then, FREE MODEL T RIDES!?! So yeah, this place is wow good.
