    Good place to learn about local history.

    This is such a great museum for such a small town. There are lots of Asian artifacts dating back to the times when Gloucester was trading directly with Asia. There is a whole room of paintings by Gloucester artist, Fitz Hugh Lane, as well! There are many pieces of art from the fishing industry, but my favorite piece in the museum is one of Walker Hancock's studies for his sculpture for the Pennsylvania Railroad WWII Memorial.

    Rich and eclectic collection. Painting includes single biggest Fitz Henry Lane collection; Marsden Hartley, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, an AMAZING riff on the goddess Diana by Umberto Romano. Giant Fresnel lens fills a whole room, amazing. A Harborfront diorama made for the 1892 Columbian exhibition.

    Wonderful small museum with local flavor. Lots of beautiful art works by Fitz Henry (”Hugh") Lane and others. Worth a visit!

    Nice combination of local contemporary art, older art (many beautiful paintings by Fitz Hugh Lane), and dioramas and artifacts highlighting Gloucester's seafaring history, including the sloop that was used in the first solo Atlantic crossing.
