Search Greenville Maine

This museum is highlighted by its star exhibit, the circa 1914 steamboat Katahdin which was produced at the Bath Iron Works shipyard. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the Katahdin is a working piece of Moosehead Lake history, and one of the few remaining links to the glory days of steamboating.

In addition to the Katahdin, the Museum has an extensive collection of steamboat memorabilia and early photographs of the Moosehead area, and is dedicated to preserving steamboating history and the marine heritage of the Moosehead Lake Region.

The Katahdin, owned and operated by the Moosehead Marine Museum, still carries passengers across the lake throughout the season, Memorial Day-October 7; free summer lecture series aboard Katahdin at dockside first week in October. Cruise availability varies, call for current schedule. Private charters may be arranged at any time during the season; special group rates offered.
