The Penobscot Marine Museum in Maine named Elizabeth Lodge its executive director. Lodge succeeds finance director Matthew Timney, who has served as interim executive director since September.

Lodge, who joins the museum next week, previously was director of museum programs at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Mass., for 17 years.

She has a bachelor's degree in history from the College of the Holy Cross and a graduate certificate in museum studies from Tufts University.

"I am honored to have been selected to lead Penobscot Marine Museum," Lodge said in a statement. "I am eager to begin working with the board, staff and volunteers to continue expanding the museum's influence throughout the Penobscot Bay region and Down East."

Celebrating its 75th anniversary, Penobscot is Maine's oldest maritime museum. It is home to one of New England's largest displays of historic boats and outstanding collections of marine art, ship models and historic photography.
