Location and Visitor Hours

Yarmouth, ME is the headquarters of the DeLorme mapping corporation, and is just five miles from Freeport, ME.  DeLorme hosts a FREE Exhibit called “Eartha”, and according to Guinness Book of World Records, Eartha is the world’s largest rotating and revolving globe, which weighs over 5600 pounds and is 41 feet wide and is contained in an atrium within glass walls that allows it to be seen outside from Route 1, and as a bonus is illuminated at night.  Eartha took the top spot from a smaller rotating globe in Italy that was 33 foot wide.

Inside viewing hours for Eartha is Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5pm, and is available at no cost. The Physical address is 2 DeLorme Drive, Yarmouth, ME

Take the Tour!

Tip:

Plan on a Day in the Freeport area to explore Freeport, and enjoy free overnight parking at LL Bean if you are traveling in an RV.  Freeport seems to shut down a little early except for the LL Bean which is open 24×7, so I would start with the Eartha exhibit (8:30 – 5:00 M-F) and then finish up exploring Freeport before going to LL Bean since they are open 24×7.
