Owner description: Site of the world's largest rotating globe, with a 42 foot diameter.
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you're interested at all in maps or geography, this is your place. First, there is the 3-story rotating globe. This is a fantastic piece of work by itself. The Map Store has every imaginable type of globe and map you might want. It is an amazing place, for young and old alike.

During our visit to Maine in 2013, there was no way that we could simply pass by the DeLorme Company and not see the giant earth replica "Eartha." It is truly a sight to behold. My husband was as excited as any small child during this visit. He is an avid lover of maps and of all things science. We spent an hour browsing through the gift shop as well, where he found several small treasures to add to his small treasure collection. The gift shop contains many cool offerings for children and adults alike. A very fun way to spend a couple of hours before hitting the shopping district in Freeport.

This is a delightful place not to be missed by tourist and Mainers, alike. The Delorme Store is truly one of a kind. You will find everything you need in the way of road maps, marine charts, highly detailed U.S. And state atlases, international travel guides, globes and much mush more. And for the kids, a huge variety of educational, science and just plain fun toys and books. Finally, there's EARTHA, the world's largest globe of, what else, the earth. It stands more than three storeys tall and is a wonder to behold! So if you're headed to Yarmouth, or just passing through, jump of exit 17 on I-295 and visit.

We stopped at the information center across the street, and happened on DeLorme by chance. What a great find! I love maps, and this was pleasure overload. Great place to pick up souvenirs that don't induce eye rolls, too.

We have passed DeLorme so many times on our trip north to Houlton. We finally stopped by. As a previous poster noted, the rest rooms are clean. The gift shop is very interesting. Found some cool books on places to visit in Maine. There are benches on each floor to rest on if you need a break. Go up to the third floor to see the whole globe from the top down.
