Overview

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 vintage steam or diesel locomotive surrounded by historic Maine buildings preserved in a recreated village, and view a collection of 60 antique autos. When you visit the 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 vintage 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.

This place is great. The best part is the train ride. There are also a lot of interesting exhibits for the kids. It is a little expensive, but it worth the visit. I recommend going when the blacksmith is on site.

Absolutely amazing, much better than I had anticipated. Almost 100% wheelchair accessible, including the train ride if they are given notice ahead of your arrival. Great for all ages.

So glad you enjoyed your visit with us. We're working on two more ramps this winter so by spring almost 100% of the historic village will be accessible!

Better than we expected, frankly. Nice exhibits, fun train ride, good explanation of narrow gauge, and lots of neat old buildings. Very glad we went!

Visited with family and had a great day. Train ride around the property, old buildings, old locomotives and about 60 vintage cars. Weather was perfect and the Railway employees were all kind and knowledgeable. Would recommend for any age!
