  • Brunswick Naval Museum & Memorial Gardens
    Poised just hundreds of feet from the icy North Atlantic, with a legacy of 68 years of relentless vigilance, Naval Air Station Brunswick, Maine, carved a unique place in US and Naval history and played a critical role in maritime patrol aviation world-wide. With important contributions during World War II, Vietnam and the Cold War, and with squadron deployments to Korea, the Far East, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, tens of thousands of airmen and women trained and flew from Brunswick, often in harm's way and usually out of the limelight. The former Naval Air Station in Brunswick (NASB), was a key player during World War II and The Cold War, and its strategically important location is the perfect setting for a museum to preserve this unique and untold period of American history and to honor those who served at NASB. Brunswick, Maine

  • Maine's First Ship
    Preserving and Enhancing Maine's History. Maine's First Ship (MFS) is a historically significant reconstruction project that we have leveraged into practical shipbuilding and ship operation programs for the education of students of all ages. As we build Virginia, our floating classroom, we are engaging students in annual summer shipbuilding courses that teach traditional skills. Programs include lofting and related math, carpentry, as well as ship preservation, operation and maintenance that will help prepare participants to succeed in real life employment. We teach the science of shipbuilding in a condensed historic context. Virginia, the first ship built in North America by English colonists, was built in 1607-1608 at Popham Colony's Fort St George. As few as 70 of the original 120 colonists built the sturdy pinnace Virginia, beginning Maineís long tradition of quality shipbuilding with 4000 ships built just on the Kennebec. During her lifetime, Virginia crossed the Atlantic at least twice, including the trip back to serve the Jamestown colony. Bath, Maine

The exhibitions are designed to give the visitors a full account of the shipbuilding industry, which was a cornerstone of the Portland Harbour. The permanent exhibitions on 19-th century wooden ships stand as an account of rich wooden shipbuilding in this particular area. For comparison, itís estimated that in the period of World War II Portland Harbour produced around 250 wooden ships, which were used in crucial battles of the Allies. Other than that, the museum offers insights on the role of Portland Harbor in creating Southern Maineís historical, economic, and social character. The visitors will be able to see some of the original documents and photographs on wooden shipbuilding.
