Research Services

The Mariners’ Museum and Park maintains a vast collection of objects, books, and archival materials that we display and use in our programs. Additionally, we support a wide range of research requests from people in our local, national, and global communities. Our Collection is unique in that we have both local and international significance and scope, making it one of the largest maritime history collections in North America.

The Mariners’ team assists diverse audiences, including

  • publishers, editors, and authors;
  • boat builders and modelmakers; 
  • professional and amateur researchers;
  • genealogists and family historians;
  • staff from other museums;

…and anyone with a maritime connection.
