Cape Cod Maritime Museum
A $5.00 value - Included with your Go Boston Card!
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. Within the Museum, a specially designated children’s area features fun, hands-on activities, quizzes, arts and crafts, and the Museum Book Store offers a range of maritime books and gifts for all. The exhibit Cape Cod 1639–1739 features the 1626 Cape Cod shipwrecked Sparrowhawk. Directly behind the Museum are sails on the historic Catboat replica Sarah.
The cape seems to be chock full of museums dedicated to exploring maritime history. Makes sense since that's their schtick and they aren't letting that go easily. This Museum is small but good quality. It's worth a stop to see the replica Catboat on property if you're in the area.
Please note, Go Boston Card holders may enter this attraction until closing or 5:30pm, whichever comes first.
