The Swan's Island Lobster and Marine Museum tells the story of commercial fishing in Maine, through the history of fishing on Swan's Island. It is history unearthed and preserved by two brothers, Theodore (Ted) and Galen Turner, who have lived on Swan's Island for their whole lives.
The Turner brothers have an extraordinary depth of knowledge about the artifacts they have gathered, and about the men and women who depended on the sea for a livelihood. They are often at the Museum, ready and willing to share this knowledge with visitors. An hour spent listening to these self-taught historians tell stories of their island and the ocean is an unforgettable experience.
