History Ahoy

The Nantucket Historical Association’s award-winning Whaling Museum is an incredible tribute to the adventurous and legendary industry that first put Nantucket on the map! Open throughout the winter, the Whaling Museum is an incredible way to spend an afternoon. 

 

Cultural Center

Nantucket’s Dreamland Theater is so much more than a movie theater. With special screenings, lectures and other live programming, in addition to showings of popular movies, the Dreamland is one of Nantucket’s finest cultural centers- and it’s open year-round!
