It has an amazing number of items on display with daily arrivals and many more waiting to be displayed. The volunteers are so knowledgeable and take as much time as you want to talk about the displays. GREAT place to visit

Went with DESA Group and relived history. Went on a cruise plus a tour of the Museum, which I highly recommend for all to see and learn.

Visited the museum by accident but it had so much meaning, I have talked about it to many. It is in a local neighborhood, a very small museum but rich in history.

The Maine Military Museum is a treasure trove of a collection. Curated by a caring engaging man, and populated with committed volunteers. A great collection. Spend time here, you will learn something.
