I found this an excellent place to learn the amazing history of the area. They have an excellent 20 minute film that really tells you the key players and events that happened in the area. Plus the exhibits are well done and worth seeing.

I thought this was very well organized and covered both the colonial period history and the naval history of the area...It is not overwhelming and a fun excursion in a great location.

The Kittery Historical and Naval Museum is very unassuming from the outside, and somewhat off the beaten track, though it is along the road between the Kittery Circle and the access to I-95 north and the shopping area. It was well worth the stop and...More

This museum only took us about an hour to go through and is mostly reading so unless you're into maritime history, you probably wouldn't enjoy it. They did have a beautiful large Fresnel lens on display from a lighthouse. Just a few items for sale....More
