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.

Our web site describes our offerings and services for educational discovery, for tours and for visitors, but only a visit can give you the authentic experience of a remarkable New England village. There is always something new happening here!

In addition to visiting, volunteering is a very rewarding part of our museum's strength. Many volunteers with a wide variety and level of skills are engaged in many new facets of our museum. Contact the Museum for current  opportunities.

Visiting the Museum

There are a number of ways that 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.
