Where History and Culture Come Alive

The Cape Cod Maritime Museum is a non-profit based in Hyannis, Massachusetts. We are Cape Cod's first museum dedicated to our rich maritime culture. Our mission includes preserving the rich seafaring traditions which Cape Cod and the Islands are famous for.  We accomplish this by preserving critical artifacts of bygone eras, and promoting the well-known sailing skills and heritage through our exhibitions, the objects in our collection, public events, and our educational programs. We enable audiences of all ages to understand and enjoy Cape Cod's maritime culture and experience the essence of what makes our corner of the country truly remarkable.

The Cape Cod Maritime Museum is ideally located on the Hyannis waterfront - adjacent to Aselton Park. Aside from the beauty of our South Street site, and our commanding view of the harbor, we are in the very heart of Hyannis village itself! The Cape Cod Maritime Museum is within walking distance of Main Street and the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, and near a variety of restaurants, beaches, attractions, and lodging.

Hyannis, MA is Cape Cod’s commercial, cultural and geographic center. The Museum brings a year-round cultural and educational asset to the village’s waterfront, and attracts visitors from the immediate community, the state, New England, as well as from nations throughout the world.

We invite you to join us here at CCMM, and learn what maritime life really means to the men and women of Cape Cod.
