“Very Educational”

Yes there is a charge but it's so worth it!! We started with a fantastic video with all kinds of history on Maine's lighthouses. My 17 year old got this awesome paper with a bunch of pictures and list to match them to. It was very educational and we had so much fun trying to find the information. After we were finished he received a free coloring book!! The museum had an amazing amount of things and I'm sure we didn't see everything. The shop was very nice too. I would definitely suggest this museum to anyone wanting to learn about our history with lighthouses!!
