  • Excellent display and chronology of autos and aircraft of the area and time. Uniquely, ALL of the vehicles and planes displayed run and can be driven or flown. A must see for car buffs. 
  • This museum was not the largest transportation museum I had ever been to, but it had some things that I had never seen before. We happened to be there on a day that they were having a Classic Car Show...  read more »
  • A tour group from Oceania's Regatta brought us to this wonderful museum in coastal Maine. Founded years ago by three friends including Thomas J. Watson, Jr. (of IBM fame), the Owl's Head museum is ext...  read more »
  • Great place to stop off en route to wherever. Brought 3 and 5 year Olds, and they practiced riding bikes in the parking lot for 45 minutes before the place opened. Lots of space to walk around, lots of helpful volunteers. We got a ride in a Model T. There was a small kids play area with a train set and a covered wagon. Their coverage of women in transportation could be better (their big area includes a magnetized board where you get to dress up Amelia E and others like paper dolls - they could do better, for sure). All in all, good.
  • Great place to see vintage cars, motorcycles and planes. Most of the collection is up to about the 1930's, but there are a few really cool 1960's and 70's cars depending on what's up for auction. There is a good section on racing here too. I think the real gem of this place is the volunteers and there vast knowledge of what's on display. Got to ride in a Model T and 1933 Packard! For free!
  • Lots of interesting things to see. Got to check out a bunch of cars that were sold at the auction the previous weekend and look up the process they sold for.
  • I was on a motorcycle ride with my dad when we happened upon this museum by accident. When we went in, we were impressed with the amount of cars, airplanes, and other exhibits in the museum. I enjoyed some of the interact displays... I probably honked every horn that the museum allowed. I had a really nice time there!
  • Beautiful area!! Fantastic museum! Loved every minute of it!! From Rhode Island & coming up this way & seeing this great attraction was worth it!!
