The Islesford Historical Museum is open daily June 15th through September 6th from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm and September 7th through September 30th 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.


On June 21, 2015, The Friends of the Islesford Historical Museum working in cooperation with Acadia National Park opened a community-curated exhibition celebrating the men and women who have fished the waters around Little Cranberry Island for generations.  The exhibition is located at the Islesford Historical Museum, where the rich history of the Cranberry Isles has been celebrated since 1927.

Visitors to the exhibition are able to step on board the stern of a lobster boat and handle the tools used daily by fishermen; enjoy a video starring several lobstermen answering questions about their trade; and see boat models, paintings, buoys, and hooked rugs created by the fishermen and their families. The exhibit will provide insights into the challenging work and the many rewards of lobster fishing in Downeast Maine.
