The Long Island Maritime Museum is committed to the research, preservation and interpretation of our region’s rich nautical heritage and the role of Long Island in our national maritime story. Whether it’s boat building, shipwrecks, shellfish harvesting or recreational boating that captures your imagination, it’s all here under our roofs, in our galleries and at our many events and programs. Young and old alike will discover the links between the Island's maritime and natural histories and will encounter some of the amazing creatures living in our local waters. Plan to visit and experience this wonderful south shore gem...
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
I would like to thank all our museum members, friends, and local community members who have
contacted us to express their concern and support for the Museum. We are doing all we can to be sure
the Museum will remain open for all to enjoy.
Like so many other organizations, we have been greatly affected by the COVID Pandemic.
Our largest 2020 & 2021 fundraising events,
The Seafood Festival & Trustee Recognition Dinner,
These are still very uncertain times for the Museum, while we remain hopeful for 2022: we need
financial assistance in order to keep our doors open for the
enjoyment of all visitors.

In our continuing effort to bring history to life, we
have begun the digitization of the Museum's media archives.
As you will see, some of the content contains only
video - leaving sound to the imagination. Some are professional documentaries and interviews;
others amateur recordings made with the intent to preserve activities that were once a way of life.
Join us as we rediscover these moments in time by renewing your Membership or becoming a new Digital Member. View the video below for a sneak peek.
