We have dozens of exhibit galleries, activities, daily talks and hands-on demonstrations.

Step back to the earliest days of the fishery in the museum’s newest exhibit “First Fishers.” Get your sea-legs on the banks schooner Theresa E. Connor and talk with "old salts" who fished the North Atlantic. Help with the launching of a schooner model and feel the thrill of watching a vessel slide down the ways. Spend a bit of time hooking a mat or quilting, in the Life in Fishing Communities exhibit. The Ice House Theatre shows films throughout the day.
