Lubec, Maine: Sardine Museum (Closed)

Hwy 189 just south of town. About as far east as it's possible to drive in the U.S. This is one of those way out of the way places where it would be especially wise to CALL FIRST before driving all the way to see it.
Temporarily closed. (Call to verify)

Sardine Museum

This small museum was open in June, 2010. Pretty much got a personal tour of the museum, which I remember having some excellent photographs. It's also just a few steps from Annabelle's, the easternmost bar in the U.S.A.

Sardine Museum

Reconstructed Sardine Cannery with old machinery, old labels, pictures, even 100 year old cans of sardines! Located on Route 1 just before the village. Hours are irregular -- if the owner's car is there he will show you around. It is the life-long project of Barney Rier.

Lubec was once the "Sardine Canning Capital of the World."
