We enjoyed the history packed museum and learned a lot about the different types of Fresnel lenses used in lighthouses.

Lighthouses are always nice for a quick stop. We thought this one was very "cute" (as my wife says) and it is in really good shape. The caretakers obviously take great pride in it. Beautiful views and our dog loved wandering the area.

Nice place to stop and take a break if you are driving the coast or are just interested in Maritime items. Very nice museum. Enough information to be interesting. Takes maybe 1/2 hour (depending on your pace), to go through. Worth the stop.

The Maine Lighthouse Museum is well thought out with a lot of information and exhibits in a small space. Easy to access and very educational. A great experience for a very low cost.
