We're thrilled to announce that the Museum has been recognized by the editors of Yankee Magazine in their 2016 Best of New England Issue! Our annual Wings & Wheels Spectacular was selected as Maine's Best Museum Event. The Wings & Wheels Spectacular, known affectionately as "The Rally," is OHTM's longest running event and among our favorites, so this award is especially meaningful to our team.
