Što ćete raditi

When you visit the Custom House Maritime Museum you'll learn authentic stories of New London rich maritime past.

By the time you leave, you'll have gained an understanding of how a small colonial settlement grew to be the world's 2nd leading leading whaling port, the reasons there are so many lighthouses in the harbor, and how it is a local grocer -- an abolitionist -- played a role in the shipboard rebellion by enslaved Africans aboard ' la Amistad'.

Our friendly docents love these stories. Several still work on the waterfront. In addition to historical tales, they're happy to tell you where to find the best lobster rolls, the art studios, private lighthouse tours, and other unmissable features of our town.

As a journalist, and as the executive director of the Custom House Maritime Museum since 2008, I have a pretty good idea what makes an intriguing story. Drawing from history, evocative artifacts, and local characters, we've created a series of exhibitions at the museum reflecting the breadth of the New London waterfront.

My own favorite is a display about fisherman Ellery Thompson (1899-1986) -- a local 'old salt' who, in addition to being a fisherman, was an avid marine painter, wrote his autobiography, and played the trumpet. When profiled in the New Yorker by Joseph Mitchell, Ellery became a local celebrity. Our Thompson collection has grown with donations from his admirers in the community; he was the real deal.

Local -- friendly -- authentic: the Custom House is that kind of place and I'm proud to be a part of it.

The Customs House history was quite interesting, shared by Susan, the only paid member of the Maritime Museum staff. Several authentic donations were attractively displayed throughout the two floors of the Museum . Susan was well versed in authentic stories of interest from the geography of waterway towns all along the Connecticut border with Long Island Sound. She knew individual stories about how hundreds of knot tying displays were used, created and gifted to the Museum. She was able to incorporate the missing links of the true story of the Armistad, the movie recently created ..loyalty to the community of New London is definitely distinct to her recollection of the facts about the 300 year old history of the town and surrounding areas. I would hope that more visitors would seek out this experience!

Nice museum with maritime collections, including light houses, diving, art of ships, and, our favorite, the Amistad story. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and great at adapting to the audience, including engaging kids.
