Sippican Historical Society Museum Reopening
July 11, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Museum of the Sippican Historical Society at 141 Front Street, directly across from the Marion General Store, is reopening on Saturday, July 11 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Lemonade will be served in the Memorial Garden on Main Street, just behind the Sippican Historical Society Building. Visitors are required to wear masks, and there will be a limit of eight visitors at a time in the museum.
Our museum exhibits currently focus on two of the most significant periods of the town’s history: the seafaring era and the rise of tourism in Marion’s Golden Age. In the Maritime Room, you can learn about Marion’s long connection to the sea, and see some of the tools and documents used in over two centuries of marine commerce in southeast New England. The Mary Celeste Room tells the story of the famous ‘ghost ship’, whose captain hailed from Marion. Finally, the Converse Room displays painting, furniture, and artifacts related to the rise of tourism and the development of the village as a summer community.
Beginning July 14, the museum will also be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
