I have been coming here for years. The museum is small, but it always seems there is something new to see. Their ground vehicle conservator, Warren, is very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to speak with.

OK, we like this place! He display changes so it's an interesting visit each time. Last visit was mostly aircraft, this visit was more automobile and motorcycle centric. Just a fun spot! And don't overlook the great raffles they have too! Worth our time!

Smaller but comparable to any first rate transportation museum.manageable size for everyone, family oriented. Auction annually in August . Extremely well maintained place and first class exhibits if interested in antique cars.

We were excited to visit the museum, based on the brochures we saw at the tourist center. Disappointed with the size of the museum.

Visited the Museum to attend the ATHS Pine Tree chapter truck show. We stopped all day as everyone was so friendly and laid back. Had a couple of rides on the model T Fords (donations). Well woth a visit if you are in Maine.

The museum was very well laid out, with vehicles and planes that interested me and my husband as well as our 7-year-old son. A highlight was seeing one of Michael Schumacher's Ferraris on display.
