Host Your Special Event or Social Gathering at the Custom House Maritime Museum
Our downtown Newburyport location is an ideal setting for:
small weddings, business meetings, lectures, concerts (great acoustics), and outside events on the lawn.
Our historic, 19th century Greek Revival style granite building overlooking the scenic Merrimack River provides a unique, picturesque backdrop to many of Greater Boston’s most memorable special event experiences.
Choosing this historic venue is a meaningful way to introduce guests to a place of national significance as well as to contribute to its preservation. The Custom House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a contributing element to the Market Square Historic District and the Newburyport Historic District.
