The museum was founded in 1873 as the Cape Ann Scientific and Literary Association. The present name was adopted in 2007.

CollectionEdit

The highlights include:

  • The largest collection of Fitz Henry Lane maritime and landscape paintings
  • A scale model of Gloucester port in the 19th century
  • The Cape Ann dory used by Alfred Johnson to cross the Atlantic Ocean in 1876
  • The original Thacher Island Fresnel lens

    Captain Elias Davis House, built in 1804 by a successful sea captain, contains much of the Museum's furniture and decorative arts collection. Many of the objects in the house belonged to Elias Davis and his descendants. The house is adjacent to the main museum galleries and 6 of the 12 rooms are open to the public.
