Visiting the Maine Lighthouse Museum

The Maine Lighthouse Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in lighthouses and American maritime history!

From sparkling lenses to heartwarming stories of the keepers and families the Maine Lighthouse Museum is America's lighthouse museum & home to the largest collection of lighthouse artifacts and mementoes.

Additional exhibits highlight stories of valor while paying tribute to the United States Coast Guard and United States Life-Saving Services, while others shed light on the lady lightkeepers.
