Maine Maritime Museum Community Day @ Maine Maritime Museum
May 20 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Help us kick off the summer season with the raising of the flags over the Wyoming evocation and cannon fire at noon signaling the official start of our seasonal tours and activities. See the museum’s latest acquisition, the historic schooner Mary E. Built in Bath in 1906 by Thomas E. Hagan, Mary E is the oldest Bath-built wooden schooner still afloat, and she’ll be restored on the museum campus this summer. We’ll also offer reduced-price cruises, and of course, lots of activities for the kids.
