This free community museum, which occupies the top floor of a landmark building that served for many years as the island's elementary school (which itself occupies a site that once served as a Revolutionary War graveyard), offers visitors a taste of City Island's seafaring history. The museum's collection includes historical items like authentic ship sails, model boats, photography collections related to the island's rich nautical past, America's Cup memorabilia and an archive of local and ocean-related books and periodicals.
