The Museum is located on Swan's Island. Take the Island Explorer bus to the Swan's Island Ferry (Maine State Ferry Service) at Bass Harbor, and enjoy a half-hour ferry ride across beautiful Blue Hill Bay to Swan's Island. Rest rooms available on the ferry and at the ferry terminals. When you arrive at Swan's Island, walk to the museum (in the Capt. Henry Lee House) about 100 yards from the ferry dock. There is no charge to visit the Museum, but donations are appreciated. There are nature trails and a "Life Along the Shore" ecology exhibit nearby.
