Resources for Educators

Cape Cod Maritime Museum is a community resource for education opportunities at all learning levels. We provide curriculum-based programs for classrooms, and place-based learning at the museum classroom & boat shop on the Hyannis working waterfront. Many of our program offerings are interdisciplinary, exhibit-related and hands-on studies of maritime themed subjects, such as boat building & design, fishing, sailing, knots, nautical navigation, artisans of the sea, shipwrecks, and historic vessels.

Visit our Adult Program page for details > >

All programs have a minimum student participation per group, which are listed with each description. Cost of programs is in addition to admissions rates.
Program course length can be adjusted depending on desires/needs of group. Large groups (20+) generally participate in programs on a rotating basis between exhibit tours and activities, and can be accommodated with multiple programs for larger groups (35+).
