Presented by the Owls Head Transportation Museum, this 2,000-square foot exhibition will illustrate the evolution of tourism and transportation history that defined the State of Maine as an international tourism destination.

The evolution of Maine's cultural identity is documented in the state’s history of transportation. Opening to the public Feb. 7, "Road to Vacationland" offers a view into the development of roads to motels, ultimately creating an infrastructure to attract and accommodate people “from away” year after year.

With displays and historic artifacts, this exhibition will offer an opportunity for all to experience the first 200 years of Maine’s journey to becoming “the way life should be.”

"Road to Vacationland" is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Bicentennial Commission and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

This and all of the museum’s exhibits are open to visitors with advanced reservations from Wednesday to Sunday for two daily sessions, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Tickets can be secured online at; guests should review safety guidelines prior to attending.
