  • This was a highlight for my history loving husband who has been soaking in all things Alexander Hamilton-- 
  • The Custom House Maritime Museum is well worthy of a trip to Newburyport, MA if you are a fan of any of a myriad of special nautically related interests, including: maritime history, boating, boat craft, model ship building, American History, Newburyport History, sailors handicrafts and more. Come to learn, be amazed, and sometimes enjoy viewing your own family history through the artifacts on display. So many of our American ancestors are tied to Atlantic ship crossings, and so much of our economic development stems from laborers' and merchants' work on the waters of the Merrimack and Atlantic. And Museum Membership offers some outstanding perks at a low annual fee. Please inquire. The only caveat to a visit is that the building has no elevators for those who require them to date. - Isa B.
