East Hampton Town Marine Museum

The Marine Museum tells the unique story of Long Island’s East End community and its relationship with the sea through artifacts, photographs, models, and displays.

The exhibitions are characterized by a thoughtful interpretation of historical research and the perspective of the men and women who work on the water every day of their lives.

The Museum is dedicated to documenting and preserving East Hampton Town’s maritime history and to showing in what ways our marine environment has had an impact on the economic, social, and recreational life of its citizens.

The Claus Hoie Gallery of Whaling features a permanent exhibition of paintings by Claus Hoie, an East Hampton painter, that depict the story of a 19th-century whaling expedition that set sail from Sag Harbor.
