Cape Cod Maritime Museum – Summer 2015Add to My Luxx Living
The Cape Cod Maritime Museum is pleased to announce we are opening for the 2015 Season on Tuesday March 17th. During the spring, we will be open Tuesday through Saturdays from 10am – 4pm and Sundays from 12noon – 4pm. During the summer months, we will be open on Mondays.
We are excited to announce our new exhibit “Maritime Fine Art”, which will be hung in our newly renovated West Exhibit Gallery. We have gathered some of the finest marine art by local Cape Cod artists, as well as one from England. Come see the $600,000 worth of art with the new gleaming hardwood floors, lighting and more!
Thanks to the generous donation from Ms. Maloura North, the museum will now display her beautiful scrimshaw collection. The collection will be on display at the front of the museum across from our newly remodeled gift shop. Come see the handmade teak cabinet that they are displayed in, and shop for the perfect nautical book, child’s toy or CCMM clothing gift.
In our East Exhibit Gallery is our exhibit “Catboats to Clipper Ships: Boat Building in Cape Cod”. We are highlighting the impact of Cape Cod on boat building and all that has been created on Cape Cod, past and present.
We continue to build boats in our Cook Boat Shop. Come see wooden boat building in person and learn from our master boat builders.
In our Preservation Boat Shed, we continue to increase our collection of boats with a Cape Cod history. We have a Beetle Cat boat on display as well as two boats of local boat builder Captain Pete Culler.
Once the weather is warmer, our Climb!Aboard boat on our patio overlooking the Hyannis Harbor is a wonderful place to bring kids and let them explore a boat. They can raise the flags, steer, and anchor away.
We are looking forward to the upcoming season and meeting all our guests in the museum and showing them some local maritime history.
On a unique and compelling site on Hyannis Harbor, the Cape Cod Maritime Museum serves as a focal point for the Cape and Island’s maritime tradition. Boat building, cultural exhibits, maritime festivals, marine artifacts, shipwrecks, children’s programs and more flow in and out of the museum building on a year-round basis. Outreach programs and collaborations with area schools, museums, historical societies and arts institutions throughout Cape Cod continue to grow, promising new and exciting opportunities to share the maritime experience with residents and visitors alike.
Exhibits are open March 17th thru December 19th, Tuesday —Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 12pm-4pm (Spring Hours) and Monday—Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 12pm-4pm (Summer Hours). The Boat Shop is open year-round for courses and volunteer training.
