Whaling Museum
#1 of 13 Museums in Nantucket
One of our favorite all-time museums, Nantucket's Whaling Museum is superb!
One of the very best small museums we've visited in many years of travel both in the U.S. and Europe.

Egan Maritime's Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum
#2 of 13 Museums in Nantucket
It is a story telling museums that weaves in a lot of local history with shipping/boating over time.
We were delighted to visit the Egan Maritime Museum, it is by far the most amazing history regarding seafaring, shipwrecks, lifesaving, and how the Coast Guard came into being.

Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum
#3 of 13 Museums in Nantucket
I was impressed with how the museum has evolved - it has an excellent collection and we were lucky enough to visit when a volunteer was doing a demonstration, which was so interesting.
A very small museum with a short film on the history of lightship baskets.
