The Galen Cole Land Transportation Museum in Bangor is a combination museum and memorial complex. Galen Cole is an industrialist and philanthropist and was a World War II veteran. He was heavily involved in veteran’s affairs and founded the museum in 1989. The grounds of the museum is studded with veteran’s memorials and vehicles and even has a covered bridge.
The inside of the museum has displays and vehicles ranging from fire equipment to snow plows. Particularly impressive are the number of large vehicles like trucks that you do not find in many museums.
The museum has quite the eclectic collection of vehicles and the grounds are worth a visit in and of themselves.
