Celebrate the Sea at the Maine Maritime Museum

There are many exciting places to visit during your stay in Brunswick, Maine! First, make yourself comfortable at the Travelers Inn – the perfect hotel for those looking for a quaint, quiet stay. After exploring the amenities, prepare yourself for a fun day of exploring. In addition to the beautiful coast and scenic beaches, make sure you pencil in a visit to the Maine Maritime Museum to learn about Maine’s rich maritime heritage and culture.

The museum offers guests a variety of activities including daily lighthouse cruises, a pirate playship, a human-sized lobster trap and other interactive exhibits. Great for families with children or couples, you can explore the banks of the Kennebec River and view the country’s only surviving historic shipyard.

Not only will you enjoy the standard exhibits that the Maine Maritime Museum has to offer, you can also participate in two other exciting events the museum is hosting! Next month, on March 10, experience “Voices of the Sea,” a performance of songs, stories and poetry about Maine’s fishermen. The performers consist of both men and women who have made a living from the sea and who will share their unique experiences that capture the spirit of those who work on the water. For tickets and more information, visit the museum’s website.

If you are visiting the area later in the spring, you can attend the 44th annual Albert Reed & Thelma Walker Maritime History Symposium on April 9. An all-day event, this year’s program will focus on the wide array of communication that has impacted life at sea. A variety of speakers will share their experiences from writing to home from the sea to communicating with other ships by flag code. Register for the symposium now and learn more on the museum’s website.

After a long, exciting day at the museum, come back to the Travelers Inn for comfortable beds and our convenient location. Not only will you receive great prices, you will receive great service on great lodgings. Call us at 800-457-3364 or visit our website to make your reservations today!
