Penobscot Marine Museum Archives

Collections of thousands of photographic images compiled by subject and photographer on a searchable online database - that is what the Penobscot Marine Museum has to offer for researchers.

Just a sampling of Penobscot Marine Museums collection
You can do a keyword search of their database in one or all of the following categories:

~ Archives
~ Photos
~ Creators
~ People

Located in Searsport, Maine, the museum is open from 10am - 5pm Monday - Saturday; and Sunday 12 - 5pm.

The online offerings are wonderful and a great gift to researchers, but personally I cannot wait to visit.  A September trip is planned.

They also have educational programs for both kids and adults and community outreach programs.

Stuffy museum fare?  Not on your life.  This looks like a lot of fun for everyone.

Take a trip to their website to see all that is going on at Penobscot Marine Museum.
