The Martha's Vineyard Museum inspires all people to discover, explore, and strengthen their connections to this Island and its diverse heritage. The Museum overlooks Lagoon Pond and Vineyard Haven Harbor and offers fourteen exhibition spaces, a classroom and program room, interactive kids' space, research library, gift shop, and café. In 2018, the Museum renovated and restored the historic 1895 Marine Hospital and added a glass pavilion that features the 1854 first-order Fresnel Lens from the Gay Head Light. A large hall behind the building was also constructed featuring many of the Museum's large objects. The Museum is open year-round, Tuesday-Sunday from 10am-4pm with extended hours on Tuesday evenings until 8pm. Admission is $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, $5 for children ages 6-15, and free for children under 6. Public transportation is less than a five-minute walk. The Vineyard Haven ferry is a seven-minute walk. Parking is available on site.
