COVID-19 Updates:

At Maritime Gloucester we are putting a lot of thought into our reopening procedure and what services we can safely offer the public. Having been closed for the pandemic during our traditionally busy Spring and early Summer seasons, our operational capacity has been hit particularly hard. We regret the need to continue the following closed areas on our site for the immediate future.  

Closed Areas

  • Currently, our indoor exhibits, galleries, and museum shop remain closed as we strive to make a safe experience for our visitors and guests.

  • Unfortunately, our Aquarium will remain closed until the Spring of 2021.

  • GLOUCESTER SCHOONER FESTIVAL 2020 has been canceled.  More info here

We will update you here and on social media regarding our reopening date. We continue to serve the community virtually and look forward to welcoming you all back to the waterfront!  Please contact us at ve any questions or concerns.  

The best place on the harbor to explore Gloucester’s rich heritage. Discover the historic fishing port’s past, present, and future! Explore Gloucester’s local fishing fleet, regional maritime culture, and environment through engaging hands-on exhibits. Fun for the whole family!
