The Museum



The Maritime Museum is located in Greenport at the foot of 3rd Street, in the former railroad station, adjacent to the Shelter Island North Ferry Dock. 
Inside, the museum boasts an array of exhibits on the maritime heritage of the area, including displays on the Greenport menhaden fishing industry, the oyster industry, lighthouse lenses, a model ship of the USS Ohio, and more. 


The 2014 exhibit at the East End Seaport Museum, in partnership with East End Arts, showcases the finalists of the East End Challenge.

A popular exhibit at the museum is our collection of Fresnel lenses. The Second Order Fresnel lens is shown right.
Second Order lenses, especially in this condition, are uncommon.


This Fourth Order Fresnel lens above, complete with clockwork mechanism, used to reside in the lantern of the Plum Island Light. It now makes its home
at the East End Seaport Maritime Museum in Greenport.
