Cole Land Transportation Museum

In partnership with Realty of Maine we proudly present our virtual tour. 

Our team is busy getting ready for the 2021 season. Unfortunately, it will be a little delayed. We will not open on our traditional day of May 1st. Out of an abundance of caution, we will open June 14, 2021. We’re delaying our opening to allow as many people as possible to get their full series of COVID-19 vaccinations. We care deeply for our volunteers and want to make sure that they are working in the most safe environment possible. Because of this delay in opening we are canceling all traditional Memorial Day event at the museum. Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you in June.

Four Generations of the Cole Family at the museum.


Our purpose at the Cole Land Transportation Museum is to collect, preserve, and display (before they disappear forever) a cross section of Maine’s land transportation equipment from which this and future generations will gain knowledge of the past.

We also wish to remember, record and display U.S. military memorabilia to forever remind this and future generations of the high price our comrades have paid to protect our freedom. In doing so, we hope to inspire and challenge the young people of today to continue on in the footsteps of pioneers who have built our state and country.
