Our mission is to celebrate and conserve  the diverse maritime heritage of the East End of Long Island. 

East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation is proud to act as a steward of the maritime heritage of the East End of Long Island. Celebrating a long and varied marine history through artifacts and exhibits, the Foundation operates Long Beach Bar “Bug” Light at the entrance to Peconic Bay.

 Additionally, the Seaport Museum hosts a full calendar of educational and cultural events, making sure that the community’s connection to the water is not relegated to history.
