On Sunday, July 26 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Maine Maritime Museum will host a grand opening celebration for Lobstering & the Maine Coast, a new interactive exhibit that tells the authentic story of Maine’s most iconic fishery – from trap to table.

The permanent, 6,200-square-foot exhibit will give the museum’s 60,000 annual visitors an inside look at this complex industry and its cultural significance in the state.

In addition to the opportunity of being the first to explore Maine’s largest exhibit on lobstering, visitors on this day of family fun will be able to participate in related fun and games include a kids’ Lobstermen’s Challenge Race, trap-making demonstrations, music by lobsterman Frank Gotwals, face painting, crafts, the Lobstermobile, boat cruises and more!

This new and exciting exhibit is made possible through the collaboration and support from the Maine Lobstermen’s Association, Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative, Department of Marine Resources, fishermen, scientists, and dealers from around the state.

Please visit the Maine Maritime Museum website for more information on the event.
