Owl's Head Transportation Museum

Excellent museum with amazing vintage vehicles. We have visited two years in a row and been very impressed.

Owl's Head Transportation Museum

Indoor display of old cars and airplanes, some reproductions of old airplanes. A few bicycles and motorcycles. Most Summer weekends there is a car show, and on days with good weather a pilot (playing the part of "The Red Baron") flies aerobatics in a Fokker triplane replica. Free model T rides with admission. If your car fits the theme for the day, you may be invited to display it.
