The Martha’s Vineyard Museum is excited to announce a new deal for Island residents this fall, winter, and spring. Beginning on Saturday, November 5th, the Museum will begin offering free admission or pay what you can to Vineyard residents every Saturday.

 

Exhibitions this fall and winter include:

  • Out of the Depths: Martha’s Vineyard Shipwrecks - Explores the fascinating and often tragic stories behind ill-fated voyages through photos, paintings and wreckage that has washed ashore.
  • Eisenstaedt and Us – Showcases the photographer’s Island meeting the Museum’s collections. Carefully selected photographs correspond to artwork and objects.
  • We Are Marching Along: Martha’s Vineyard and the Civil War - Uses the Museum's collections and contemporary newspaper accounts, letters, and diaries, to give visitors a peek into how the Civil War affected life on the Island.

 

In addition to these exhibitions, visitors can see the 1854 original Fresnel Lens from the Gay Head Lighthouse, a carriage shed of vehicles and vessels, an interactive kids’ space, and a permanent exhibition on the Wampanoags.

 

The Museum is open every Saturday, 10am - 4pm. Off street parking is available on School Street.
