We are eternally grateful to all of our benefactors who contribute towards keeping us alive. All proceeds are directly reinvested into making our museum a better and more impressive place for you and your family.



We have a very important mission here at Mattapoisett Museum: To educate and enlighten the minds of our visitors and to encourage curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. We believe in educating the community and passing on the joy we carry for our work. However, our work is never complete—we need fresh ideas and dedicated volunteers to devote time and creative thinking to make the museum the best that it can be. If that is you, send us a message.

Our volunteers are at the heart of what we do. Each of them motivates us to develop new, exciting programs that immerse our visitors in unique experiences. An hour or two is all it takes.

Volunteering opportunities include:

  • Transcribing journals in our collection

  • Greeting and giving tours of the museum

  • Administrative duties 

  • Cleaning and dusting the exhibit space

  • Working in the gift shop during events


Your business would contribute to the continuing education of all people who walk through our doors. If you had a good experience in the past or were lucky enough to visit us at one of our exhibitions, know that all this wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our Corporate Partners. Join a growing list of local businesses supporting the museum.
