Along with the models and artifacts on display, the Museum also has a Research Library.
This valuable resource contains a collection of maritime books, archives, ships plans, and periodicals. We have over 1,000 catalogued volumes cataloged by author, title, and subject matter covering a wide range of topics including naval, shipbuilding, maritime history and modeling. The plans in the collection, also cataloged for easy searching, are heavily detailed making them useful to ship modelers, and include both sail and engine-powered vessels.
While the Research Library does not loan material, we do provide public access to for those interested in learning more about maritime history. By appointment only. Please contact Lauren Anderson at email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
