Veteran’s Day at the Cape Ann Museum

Active military, veterans and their families are invited to join us at the Cape Ann Museum for free on Veterans Day next Friday, November 11!

The Museum will have an ongoing video program in the auditorium featuring images from the Civil War to Vietnam with a voice-over of letters written home by soldiers.


Also offered on Veteran’s Day is will be a special military-themed tour at 2:00 pm looking at items from our collection like this cannon ball that was fired into the facade of the First Parish Unitarian Church of Gloucester in 1775.


The Museum’s Activity Center will be open all day for families with younger children to enjoy clean art projects, picture books, building blocks and a half size dory for lobster fishing play.
