Owls Head Transportation Museum - an amazing collection of antique exhibits including aircraft, motorcycles, bicycles, and automobiles

Farnsworth Art MuseumJust a few miles south of Rockland is Owls Head. This small town is home to an amazing and unique attraction for people of all ages, Owls Head Transportation Museum. This museum features over 200 antique aircrafts, motorcycles, bicycles, and automobiles. Some of these transportation pieces even date back to the very early 1800's. If you immediately think of a stuffy confined museum in which you need to be an antique expert, think again. With a unique design similar to an aircraft hanger, people and children can freely work through the museum and enjoy the exhibits.

Throughout the year, the museum hosts a variety of different events. In the warmer months you can watch unique aviation shows, and get a first-hand view of various demonstrations. The museum consistently documents and researches its collections and even offers educational publications and programs for its visitors. The core of the collection focuses on the “pioneer” period that includes the first attempts at manned flight and the development of automobile transportation. When walking through this museum, you are clearly reminded about the importance of technological advancement, and the amazing journey that transportation has taken over the years to bring us where we are today.

If you are looking for older pieces with deep historic roots, people can visit the famous 1804 Cayley Glider, the 1868 Velocipede Boneshaker, and the 1880 Merlin Portable Steam Engine.
