About Us

The Hull Lifesaving Museum, the museum of Boston Harbor Heritage, preserves the region’s lifesaving tradition and maritime culture through collections, exhibits, experiential and interpretive education, research and service to others. The museum’s open water rowing programs in Boston Harbor educate young people about themselves while developing a constituency that takes stewardship for its maritime history. The deeds, traditions, and ethics of nineteenth century coastal lifesavers—Skills, Courage, and Caring—are the foundation of the museum’s exhibits and programs, and its underlying commitment to working to impact society, and individual lives, for the better.
