Welcome to the Maine Lighthouse Museum

The Maine Lighthouse Museum is the proud home of the largest collection of Fresnel lighthouse lenses and the most important landmark collection of lighthouse artifacts and Coast Guard memorabilia in the United States. The museum has merged the spectacular lighthouse collection from the former Museum of Lighthouse History of Wells, ME with these exhibits. The two collections are now on display and marvelously complement each other. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Visitors are welcomed to Maine Discovery Center, the location of the collection's new home, the Maine Lighthouse Museum, as well as the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Lighthouse Depot store.

While the Maine Lighthouse Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in lighthouses and American maritime history, the new Maine Discovery Center is a first-class regional visitor center with exhibits from museums around the Maine Discovery Coast.

The Maine Lighthouse Museum is located on the waterfront in historic downtown Rockland overlooking the beautiful Rockland Breakwater and Penobscot Bay. Come visit the museum and experience the "Rockland Renaissance" here in the heart of the mid-coast.
