Sea History Home page

Since the dawn of civilization, humans have been drawn to the sea, fascinated by its vastness, power and mystery.

The National Maritime Historical Society is the national voice for America’s maritime heritage—helping to raise awareness of our nation’s history and the role seafaring has played in shaping the United States of America along with the rest of the world.

Our mission is to preserve and perpetuate the maritime history of the United States and to invite all Americans to share in the challenging heritage of seafaring.
