Spend the Day

Spend a fun filled day discovering 35-acres of Maine history brought to life! Step back in time for a peek at Maine and the way life used to be.
Nowhere else in New England can you ride the rails behind an authentic steam locomotive surrounded by historic Maine buildings preserved in a recreated village of aged and vintage buildings assembled from across Maine, and view a collection of 60 antique autos or experience model trains as never before.

I needed to kill time on the last day of vacation and stopped by here, and boy am I glad I did. So, so many cool things to see (not just trains), and the entire complex is very open, allowing you to poke your head into places more strict museums wouldn’t allow. Most certainly worth a visit, and I’d go so far as to say this is a must-see location during any trip to Boothbay, even if you think you’re just going for the water.
