  • This little gem is located right on the Hyannis Harbor. One is sounded by the many restaurants, ferry boats, and this historic harbor. The exhibits are wonderful, authentic and give you a glimpse of t...  more »
  • If you're in the area and it's cold you can also repair a few minutes in this Museum, but come on purpose would be absurd. The Museum is microscopic and sincerely does not have any interest.

  • So interesting! I didn't know much about Cape Cod's maritime history until visiting their wonderful museum. The staff there were very enthusiastic about the trade and answered all of my questions. Highly recommend a visit!
  • Fabulous place to visit to get acquainted with traditional boat building. The crew in the boat shop were welcoming and enthusiastic. Lots a good old wooden boats to look at. I recommend a visit for anyone interested in boat building. Why only 3 stars? Unfortunately the person at the ticket counter was rude. I brought my 1 year old with me to give him exposure to wooden boats, he got exposed to bad customer service as well. I had to prompt this person, to which she replied “what?” while looking at her phone. She was then kurt throughout the transaction. My one year old showed more manners than this person. A suggestion: If you’re having a bad day, don’t convey it to customers, learn to deal with it, put on a smile for those who pay your salary. Patrick E. Sandwich
  • History of Nantucket and whaling, including some of my ancestors. Amazing all sperm whale bones suspended above whale boat, scrimshaw exhibit
  • One of Hyannis' lesser known jewels. Knowledgeable and experienced staff with a passion for their passion. Ever changing displays and projects keep me going back repeatedly.
  • We loved it. The ladies that were in there gave us additional information as we went around.
