Event Details

In honor of local shellfishermen and women, not only has the Cape Cod Maritime Museum curated a fascinating, informative new exhibit entitled Shellfishing Cape Cod, but the museum has also curated a unique lineup of events to celebrate the exhibit’s opening. “A lot of our visitors from off-Cape don’t know how shellfish grow and live, or even what they look like, and I think it’s important to teach people about our ecosystems and about the industry,” said Museum Curator Don Stucke. Saturday, February 15, 10:00 am-4:00 pm – FREE admission all day Bring your family to see Shellfishing Cape Cod, where you’ll learn about aquaculture farming, shellfish grants, oyster upweller projects and much more.
