We had been to New Zealand and their Maritime Museum - This one is equally good as the America's cup history was so interesting from the "American" side. Boats were fun to see and the Local connection with the Herreshoff family made it truly special. If you can go - it is worth it.

There is so much to see and learn and even touch at this fabulous home to sailing history from America's cup racers to earliest torpedo boats. Beautiful displays and loads of real boats to explore.

This is a small museum with a big influence in the early days of the America's Cup races. Family owned and run by 2 brothers, it built some of the fastest racing boats in the world. The Herreshoff company made boats for the rich and famous and also created a torpedo boat for the US Navy back in World War I. An interesting place to visit and it includes a nice history of the America's Cup races.

Wow! Want to learn all about the history of America's Cup Yacht Racing in the glory days of the late 1800's and early 1900's? Get to the HMM! Lots of great historic boats on the property, magnificent historic half-hulls, written and photographic history, etc., etc.. definitely worth a visit; plan a half-day to see it all.

If you're a Herreshoff fan, or fond of the America's cup this is a must visit. Some very nice older vessels on display. Knowledgeable staff, and it's a working museum so some are under restoration. If this type of museum is your thing, don't miss it.
