Cape Cod Maritime Museum
Preserving and celebrating Cape Cod’s maritime heritage
Nestled at the head of beautiful Hyannis Harbor, the Cape Cod Maritime Museum holds a unique collection of artifacts, models, and fine art chronicling the nautical history of some of Cape Cod’s most important nautical events and people.
The museum’s Cook Boat Shop is a working wood boat shop where we help strengthen community through boat building — keeping alive the boat building culture, a tradition that’s been passed down through the generations.
Our Historic Boat Barn houses a complete collection of Cape Cod wood boats — many of them, such as our Spritsail Susie, over 100 years old.
