Fodor's Review

At what is still an active shipyard, this museum traces the evolution of the American schooner, which was first created in Essex. The museum sometimes offers shipbuilding demonstrations. One-hour tours take in the museum's many buildings and boats, especially the Evelina M. Goulart—one of only seven remaining Essex-built schooners.
