The staff is friendly, the hours accommodating, the inside rooms are well done and informative. The outside buidlings of the old Percy and Small boatyards are a fascinating slice of history.

This is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Packed with information and detail along with living history. Hours to go through it all.

The displays here are wonderful, inside and out. A visitor can find out everything about shp or boat building and the history of Maine boatbuilding. Fascinating and well thought out.

This museum is as professionally presented as the Smithsonian. Allow a full day to see it all. It gives a wonderful look at the history of ship building- hundreds of years. This is probably not the best place for pre-schoolers. It would be best to...More

One of the best parts is the interactive display of lobstermen and their buoys - but the whole place is a wonderful surprise full of seacoast history and memorabilia. Worth a stop.

Fascinating museum. Fascinating, comprehensive and well-done exhibits that cover everything from shipbuilding to cod fishing. Beautiful setting as well. Well worth the visit, even though Bath Ironworks Shipyard tour was not available when we were there. Highly recommended.

Save your money. The Bath iron Works tour is a rip off. $15 each to watch a video in a small hot room followed by a drive bye of Bath Iron Works. They stop in the parking lot and give you some information.. Then a ride... More
