“Beautiful History Pieces”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This museum was so amazing. The lightship baskets were so beautiful and all so different. I am so glad I stopped in and took a tour of all their remarkable pieces.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

THis is a small (but packed) museum devoted to Nantucket baskets. The most famous basket makers shop is here too and often there are demos. A walk from town, but then you can reward yourself be stopping across the street at 56 Union

“Excellent”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Very interesting museum, small but well worth a visit. Combine with visit to Shipwreck museum for interesting picture of early Nantucket.

“Treasures come in small packages!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This small museum was well worth the visit. The history connection to Nantucket was well presented. Be sure to take the time to watch the video. The people who work at this museum have a love of their topic. The museum does not require a long visit, however, you leave with a clear picture of the lightship basket and Nantucket.
