The Mission of the Boothbay Railway Village is to conserve, display and interpret artifacts, authentic period structures and technologies utilized in Maine during the historical period of the Mid-19th through the Mid-20th Centuries.


The Vision of the Boothbay Railway Village is to utilize its unique village setting to engage adults and children in hands-on activities designed to create a better understanding of Maine village life throughout the period. We aspire to transform the way we view and relate to Maine’s rural past through interactive visitation, educational opportunism, and a variety of dynamic programs to enrich our daily lives.

Plenty of interesting exhibits to see and lots of space for the kids to run and play. A whole day can be planned. Go first thing in the morning with a packed picnic lunch. Then, you can ride the train as often as you like during the day and take your time exploring.

I really had fun here. When my sister first told me we were going I snarked at how it would take us five minutes but they have a lot of great history and a lot of really intricate displays. The volunteers are very knowledgeable. Overall it’s a great little side stop over.

We spent the morning here with our kids. They had a great time. They have some fun stuff for the kids to climb on. The train ride was short but fun.
