Portsmouth Village is only accessible by boat. A list of the authorized ferry services can be found on the Ferry page.
Exhibits on "lightering", community life, and survival in this village can be seen in the Theodore and Annie Salter House and Visitor Center, the School, the Post Office and General Store, and the Life-Saving Station.
These buildings, as well as the Methodist Church and Henry Piggot House, are open to the public seasonally.
