The Museum of Maritime Pets fosters an appreciation of animals living or working on or near the water, who collaborate with man in times of peace and war. The Museum documents their contributions and promotes safe and humane treatment of animals who live or work on or near the world's waterways.
World-wide activities include art and historical research at libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, naval and maritime organizations, oceanographic and zoological institutions and aquaria.
Our growing research library has been catalogued and is available by appointment. Topics include maritime history, animals on voyages and breed information.
Pilot school programs are available for Grades 4-10, and include humane education, appreciation of the environment and animal/human partnerships.
