  • Always enjoyed seeing the memorials to wars gone by. Unfortunately the museum was closed when we arrived but even just walking the area seeing the monuments on the well care for grounds made it a terrific visit. Easily noticeable from the road.
  • Like big trucks and trains? Want to learn the history of transportation in Maine? Want to learn about military history? This is the place to visit! Great for all ages.
  • It's like watching "American Graffiti" with snowplows...I found myself often wondering why our modern vehicles couldn't have the classic styling of some of the cars that are on display. Patriotism runs deep at the Cole Land Transportation Museum, it's founder having been a veteran of WWII. I found it somewhat amusing that his wife's Mercedes was on display...a testament to how much that vehicle likely cost him! ;-) A wonderful and enchanting experience that smelled an awful lot like a bunch of tires...
  • Amazing. My kids loved it. Camera did before we got through. Will have to go back!
  • It's packed with vehicles and contraptions of all descriptions. It's great that they've saved all this stuff. We didn't have a lot of time, so give yourself some time to listen to all the audio stuff and read about everything. It's definitely a great place to take school children to learn about history.
