Maritime Gloucester Museum.
It is an interesting spot with touch tanks to see fish and aquatic habitats. We were glad to see some oysters among the crabs, rays and other fish.
There also were interactive exhibits including a model rope walk.
They also have a workshop to repair wooden boats, a space for children's classes such as making a remote operated underwater vehicle, and boats. Those boats include pilot dinghies for rowing and two sailboats.

Perhaps most impressive is the restored fishing sloop that can accommodate up to 90 people for events.
It was once used for cod fishing and has a fascinating story as related to us by a helpful and knowledgable museum employee.
