Overall Guide : Whaling Museum is a maritime museum which displays ship models, whaling equipment, the skeleton of a whale, a restored town clock and more. The museum is situated in a candle factory and has a rooftop observatory. Maria Mitchell Aquarium displays... more the marine life of the island with its crustaceans, finfish and mollusks. There are interactive exhibitions where children can touch fish and picnics to nearby marine vicinities. The Maria Mitchell Observatory build in 1908 displays an outdoor model of the solar system and sunspot observations. Maria Mitchell Birthplace is the residence of the former professional women astronomer who was the first women to get the fellowship of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Nantucket Life Saving Museum is a place worth visiting to know the history of the people who faced the turbulent sea to save the lives of the sailors. One can take a guided tour of the Nantucket Historical Association to get to know more about the history of the place.

Overall Guide : Not for people seeking glitzy night life. It's for those who love good food, beautiful beaches with few restrictions and open spaces. Great for families and those who love the water. Good public golf course. Limited availability of tennis.
Not to be missed Beaches , Whaling Museum , Maria Mitchell/Critter Cruise
