There are lots of fun things to do at Salem Maritime! Check out the calendar of events to see if there are any family activities scheduled during your visit.

How to Become a Junior Ranger:

  1. Pick up your Junior Ranger booklet at Waite and Peirce, our park store (193 Derby St.).
  2. Explore the site using your Junior Ranger booklet! The program contains questions and activities with the guidance of two helpful Junior Rangers, Basil and Shelly.
  3. In the course of your journey, find a Ranger to swear you in and give you your Junior Ranger badge.
  4. Return your Junior Ranger booklet to Waite and Peirce and tell our staff what you've learned.
