The Ship's Store is Full of Unique Gift Ideas!

The Orientation Center  - 66 Main Street

The Ships Store at the Museum 

Unique gifts from our Ship's Store say "you are one-of-a-kind!" Choose from a wide range of small gifts, trinkets, maritime books, prints, cards, children's books, toys and other unique products available for sale.

As part of the recent renovation of the 66 Main Street Orientation Center, the Ship's Store has been expanded to offer a wider variety of items related to our maritime history. The store is open during Museum houOur Merry Toymakersrs.  

Thanks to the work of staff and volunteers you can give your favorite child a hand-made, Essex-built boat kit in a variety of designs. These kits are easily assembled and may decorated to the young Captain's  taste.


Drop by the Ship's store, enjoy a cup of coffee and take home great gifts for yourself, friends and family!
