Your support is needed.


Becoming a member, a donor, or volunteer deepens your connection and makes our preservation efforts, programs, and day to day operations possible. Our collection, our visitors, and our community depend on you.

Become a member or a donor by clicking the "Become a Member" or "Donate" button on this page, visit the Orientation Center at 66 Main St. and sign up in person, or send a check. Please make it payable to Essex Shipbuilding Museum and mail it to us at PO Box 277,  Essex, MA 01929.

To volunteer, contact Chris at chris@essexshipbuilding.org, or come down to the shipyard on a Saturday morning to learn more and join the crew.

Thank you for supporting us!
