Moosehead Marine Museum: Relive Part Of Maine’s Past

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall: The Moosehead Marine Museum of Maine has a wide-range of steamboat memorabilia along with historical photos of the Moosehead Lake area. In addition to the memorabilia, the museum acquired a 110 foot long steamboat built in Maine at Bath Iron Works in 1914. This steamship was used to transport tourists, food, live stock, and workers to the different islands on the lake. The ships name is the Katahdin and in 1995 it was restored. Owned by the museum, the steamship is now used for some of the same tasks as it was in the early 1900s. The Museum is a great place to bring your family so the children can learn about the methods of transportation used years ago. At the museum, you can learn about the history of the lake and how it was integrated as part of Maine’s economy in the early 1900s.
