The Long Island Maritime Museum, founded in 1966, has a collection of 10,000 objects, a rich archive of documents and photographs, which represents Long Island's history. For over 40 years people from all over the world have visited the museum. The museum grounds, including 14 acres and nine historic buildings, were once part of the Meadowedge estate owned by the Hard family. Group tours around the museum can be arranged by appointment.
