Swing by to pay homage to the New England fishing village that built more two-masted wooden fishing schooners than any other place in the world. (Talk about an enticing reason to pull over on the highway and make a visit!) Jokes aside, the Museum has one of the best maritime collections in a region where there is no shortage of competition.
