Not all of Salem Maritime's important artifacts are as tall as the Friendship of Salem or as heavy as the brick Custom House. For a historian, sometimes fascinating stories can be found in small items as well.
In the Collection Spotlight, we will focus on some of the smaller treasures in our collection. We have the opportunity to examine objects that are either too fragile to display or are on display but worthy of more examination. Through photography and presentation of research, our museum staff and interns provide an in-depth exploration of these items.
