Bath, one of Maine’s most preserved cities has a wide variety of offerings for history, industry and the arts.
The Maine Maritime Museum is located on a beautiful 20-acre campus on the banks of the Kennebec River. Indoors, visitors enjoy air-conditioned galleries with exhibits and hands-on activities for all ages.
Outdoors, visitors can join a guided tour or stroll through the historic Percy & Small shipyard and see how many of the world’s largest wooden sailing ships were built, learn about lobstering in the Maine Coast and Lobstering Exhibit, enjoy lunch under the towering sculpture of the schooner Wyoming (the largest wooden sailing vessel built in North America), watch wooden boats being built in the Museum boat ship, or play on a pirate ship.
Seasonally, visitors can get the best view of the area’s lighthouses and spectacular scenery on daily cruise boats, learn the story of Bath Iron Works from shipyard insiders who then guide a windshield tour of views of the shipyard, and tour the Victorian-era home of the Donnel shipbuilding family.
Take in some of the local theatre, music, art, dance and community at the Chocolate Church Arts Center.
Many call Schutty’s Seafood on State Road in Bath THE best seafood in Maine. We recommend the haddock tacos or the seafood chowder–and make sure to get a side of onion rings with everything!
