Transportation Museum in Bangor, Maine Draws Interest

It seems like it's located in the middle of nowhere, but the Cole Land Transportation Museum in Bangor, Maine is amazing. Housed in a building large enough for railroad cars, snowplows, tractor trailers and much more, the museum features over 200 Maine-connected vehicles, fascinating old photographs, and other artifacts. Visitors there should come prepared to spend a long morning or afternoon studying vintage cars and tractors, climbing into train cars, watching videos, and much more.

"The only meaningful legacy we will leave this world will be the difference we make in others especially in the life of a child." That slogan from the outside of the building says it all. What a lovely gift and interesting destination for school field trips.

I love those kinds of museums. I wonder if my in-laws ever visited it on their trips to Maine?
