1 2 3 4

The Seal Cove Auto Museum features early automobiles and motorcycles from the Brass Era (1895-1917). Antique auto enthusiasts as well as those who simply enjoy autos from the past will delight in this unique collection.

Over 50 vehicles tell the exciting story of early automotive history, the years when men tinkered in their barns and yards experimenting with steam, electricity and gas powered engines! The Seal Cove Auto Museum shares this story — the innovation, ingenuity, and the power of imagination — that created these vehicles and transformed life in America.

The Museum hosts a number of events each year including special activity days, book signings, car talks, movies, and visits by rare Brass Era autos. Check our events page for more information.

The Museum Store has a gift-worthy collection of all things auto, stop in the store when you are in Seal Cove, or choose from a selection available for purchase on-line.

Please note: the Museum has shut its doors to the public for the winter. However, we will open by appointment, please call 207-244-9242 or email Raney Bench if you would like to visit. The Museum will also open occasionally for special events over the winter, be sure to check these out on our Events page, and follow us on Facebook to get the latest event information.
