Bath
Having launched its first ship over 400 years ago, and still home to the Bath Iron Works shipbuilders, the city of Bath is proud of its maritime history. The Maine Maritime Museum celebrates this long heritage, with 25 acres of historic waterfront featuring original 19th century shipyards and exhibits. Named one of the "Best Small Cities in America," Bath offers visitors the opportunity to wander down treelined streets, along the Kennebec River and past beautifully restored 19th century homes.

Indoors, visitors enjoy air-conditioned galleries with exhibits and hands-on activities for all ages. Outdoors, visitors can join a guided tour or stroll through the historic Percy & Small shipyard and see how many of the world's largest wooden sailing ships were built, learn about lobstering in the Maine Coast and Lobstering Exhibit, enjoy lunch under the towering sculpture of the schooner Wyoming (the largest wooden sailing vessel built in North America), watch wooden boats being built in the Museum boat ship, or play on a pirate ship. Seasonally, visitors can get the best view of the area's lighthouses and spectacular scenery on daily cruise boats, learn the story of Bath Iron Works from shipyard insiders who then guide a windshield tour of views of the shipyard, and tour the Victorian-era home of the Donnel shipbuilding family. less
