The Sail, Power & Steam Museum is a treasure trove of interesting and exciting displays. Located on the old Snow Shipyard property on the shores of Rockland Harbor, it is the only maritime museum in Maine located on an authentic, historic shipbuilding site. Inspect the builders models of amazing, huge, trading schooners and see the ways on which they were launched. View old images and photographs of these vessels under sail. Many displays are operating, "hands on" kind of objects. Engines- steam or make 'n break- ride in a Model T Ford- cruise Rockland Harbor on our 1914 Flagship or roam on our waterfront beach. There is lots to do at Sharp's Point South-SPS Museum.

Our mission is to enrich the lives of visitors, volunteers and the general public of the state of Maine through hands on, interactive, and educational experiences with historically significant sailing, power and steam driven vessels, ships and small boats while providing instruction as to their origins, construction, and original commercial and recreational purposes.

SPS Museum has wonderful offices for rent at bargain prices, the proceeds of which go for the museum, a "501 C", not for profit entity, and a "life of the lease" membership is yours with all the opportunities afforded.

We are open Spring, summer & Fall  from Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm, closed from Dec thru April. We do hold many special evening events throughout the year. Call at 207-701-7627 or 207-701-5050. Check our on line calendar at or
