Cole Land Transportation Museum


If you ever find yourself in Bangor, Maine check out the Cole Land Transportation Museum.  I stopped in on a recent trip to Acadia National Park and have to say that it is great little museum. Displays include a locomotive and caboose, the first snowmobile sold in the state of Maine, fire trucks, motorcycles, a potato wagon (of course), and hundreds of other interesting land transportation items. There is also a section that salutes our Military. On the grounds you can see a Vietnam era M-60 Tank and a Huey UH-1D Helicopter.

Check it out—you won’t be disappointed.
