Our mission is to educate and inspire the public through presentations of the history and innovative work of the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and the America’s Cup competition.
The Museum exhibits Herreshoff yachts, models, historic photographs, steam engines, and artifacts related to America’s greatest naval architect and builder during "The Golden Age of Yachting".
The America’s Cup Hall of Fame is located on the grounds of the former Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, where yachts were built for eight consecutive America’s Cup defenes between 1893 and 1934. Its collection includes plaques and photographs honoring the inductees; half-hull models of challengers and defenders; artifacts including spars, steering wheels, and tank test model hulls; and special exhibits about the Cup.
