Travel back in time to vintage Vacationland. Nowhere else in New England can you ride the rails behind an authentic steam locomotive surrounded by historic Maine buildings preserved in a recreated village, and view a collection of 60 antique autos.
Your admission fee includes the opportunity to experience any of our unique, interactive activities offered during your visit such as steam train rides, Model T rides, blacksmith and artisan demonstrations, hands-on history lessons for kids, and specialty tours. These change daily and no specific program is ever guaranteed.
During 2016, the Museum’s Railroad and Steam Shop is undertaking a major restoration project which will interrupt steam train service twice a week. Expected steam train departures will be on the hour between 11 am – 4 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesday, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. This creates an unusual opportunity for the visiting public to experience behind the scenes shop tours to see the restoration of S.D. Warren Baldwin No. 2 up close. These thirty minute tours will take place on Fridays at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm and depart from Freeport Station. Space is limited to the first 25 guests per tour. (Shop Tour participants must wear closed toe shoes and be able to stand for thirty minutes. Children must be supervised closely at all times, tour is generally not suitable for children under 5. Sorry, no pets permitted on shop tours.)
Throughout the season a wide variety of special events are hosted on the Village Green from vintage ball games to car shows and family festivals. Check out the event calendar on the Museum's website for a complete schedule.
