Welcome to History

At the Essex Shipbuilding Museum you can experience New England work ethics, attitudes and values that have much to teach us today.

There are a number of ways  you can visit the Museum. Both individual and group tours, including school groups, are available. In addition to tours there are opportunities for scholars to access the extensive collections. 
There is always something new happening here!

In addition to visiting, volunteering is a very rewarding part of our museum's strength. Contact the Museum for current  opportunities.
