Members and guests are invited to explore the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, followed by lunch at Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast. The museum celebrates the maritime culture of the  Penobscot Bay region. Plus, the museum is home to Maine's largest pinhole camera!
We have arranged for a docent-led tour of the museum and grounds, including eight buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and seasonal exhibits. We'll carpool from MDI and we'll have plenty of time at the museum and nearby Belfast.
