A video message for Giving Tuesday
Maritime Gloucester is a working waterfront, maritime museum, sea pocket aquarium all rolled into one exciting destination! Whether you are a visitor or a local, we have so much for you to do and see!
Our passion is sharing our fantastic site with the public. We work with local schools, engaging students with hands-on marine science education. Our adult programs teach old skills and new technique across our working waterfront. We leverage the rich maritime heritage of Gloucester and our unique marine environment to offer a host of exciting programs, public pop-up workshops, schooner sailing experiences and so much more.
