Stopped here on the drive north to Maine. We read about the Maritime Museum while entering Newburyport and decided to give it a visit. There are two levels of exhibits but the museum is a bit cold and dark. The exhibits are interesing however.

This is a small museum in a beautifully restored stone building. You can see the history of the Coast Guard and Maritime importance of the area.

Event planners rent out the lawn in front of this historic museum, right in the center of town, we had a wedding here it was beautiful, call early to get a spot, in the center of town and parking available! You need a caterer and a tent, but worth it!!!

On the first full-fledged sunny day in June, family and friends went to visit the Maritime Museum. The docent walked us through each room and highlighted historic points and/or back stories to artifacts (such as Orlando Merrill's original prototypes for hulls of boats). She moved us through without over-explaining and without rushing. Due to her accompanying us, we learned quite a bit about Newburyport's history. The next time your are in town, treat yourself to a visit to the Custom House Maritime Museum.
