We are closed for the season but open by chance or appointment. The display area is not heated so dress accordingly.
You can't get near Vinalhaven without seeing hundreds of pot buoys. They form a sort of minefield around the island that lobster boats and ferries navigate daily. From the beginning, lobstermen have needed a marker for their traps and a way to distinguish their gear from everyone else. Each lobsterman has their own unique color combination and design - sometimes passing those combinations (or variations of) down to children and grandchildren. The feature exhibit this wummer will pay tribute to past and present Vinalhaven lobstermen with a display of mini pot buoys.
