  • This is truly a hidden gem!! Current Winslow Homer exhibit brings together wonderful pieces from all over to Gloucester. Another amazing collection is a large display of nautical artwork by Fitz Hugh Lane. Worth spending an at least an hour or two browsing.
  • Really neat museum. The artwork here is beautiful. The kids’ room on the lower level has a lot of neat things for younger children.
