Stewards of Your History

Join us as we bring our past to life

It’s about where we’ve been. Where we are. Where we’re going.

From High Street to the shores of the Merrimack, the neighborhoods of Newburyport are steeped in maritime history, rich with stories of the people who helped build this city, explore these waters, and found our nation. From its settlement to its rise as a maritime hub to its rebirth, we’re here to tell its story. To share its legacy. To show you how you’re a part of where we will go. We are the Custom House Maritime Museum, the stewards of your maritime history.
