Plan Your Visit

We invite you to travel back in time to vintage Vacationland with us. 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, and view a collection of 60 antique autos.

When you visit the Railway Village Museum you’ll learn about how technologies like steam engines and the automobile changed life along the coast of Maine between 1850 and 1950.  In addition to the opportunity to ride in a vintage coach behind a 100 year old steam locomotive, the Museum also occasionally offers rides in one of our Ford Model Ts.  Two of our most popular attractions are the resident goats who delight visitors of all ages with their antics. From a display of hundreds of salt & pepper shakers to a collection of engines that powered everything from small boats to whole factories, there truly is something for everyone in your family here.

Throughout the season a wide variety of special events are hosted on the Village Green from vintage ball games to car shows and family festivals. The Museum is also a unique location for wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Please explore our website to learn more about the RaIway Village Museum. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Wow, the Boothbay Railway Village Museum was a paradise for my three young kids (ages 1 and 3). The steam train is about 15 minutes long and goes on a loop around the property; on the hour, every hour. There were so many other trains and buildings to see; the kids just loved all the vehicles and displays. It’s all flat and enclosed once you’re within the grounds and easy enough walking distance for the kids between the spots. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and warm towards the kids as well as the other families and visitors there. Great experience!
