Maritime Museum adds lobster exhibit

WCSH - The Maine Maritime Museum will hold the official opening of a new, permanent lobster exhibit, starting at 10:00 a.m. Sunday. Museum curators said they designed the exhibit to show not just the history of the lobster fishery, but also give visitors a chance to understand more about the crustacean itself and the lobster fishing industry. Part of the exhibit includes a "buoy wall", filled with buoys donated by fishermen. Visitors can use an interactive screen that shows where each buoy is from, the fisherman who used it and some details about him or her.
