CC Maritime Museum

The Cape Cod Maritime Museum has an ideal location on the Hyannis waterfront. Aside from the beauty of the South Street site and its commanding view of the harbor, it is in the heart of Hyannis, within walking distance of Main Street and ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, and near beaches, attractions and lodging. Hyannis 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 to Cape Cod and brings visitors from the immediate community, from around the state and New England, and from all parts of the Unites States as well as from nations throughout the world.
