Help Create Our Exhibit!

Paint Factory Memories

If you have memories, objects or photographs from the Tarr and Wonson Paint Manufactory, Ocean Alliance and Maritime Gloucester would love to hear from you. 

We are creating an exhibit on the Manufactory's history, and its pioneering role in the development of commercially viable anti-fouling paint which played a pivotal role in America's industrial revolution and the rapid growth of its commercial fishing industry. 

Your stories could be just what we need to make it come alive. Objects or memorabilia that might be borrowed for the exhibit or examined for their information are also of great interest, and we will happily copy any photographs and return originals to you. Please contact Melanie Murray-Brown at Maritime Gloucester at 978-281-0470 or mmurray-brown@maritimegloucester.org.

Our new Interactive Fisheries Exhibit

Discover Maritime Gloucester's Think Tank

Technology Grant from Applied Materials Foundation Supports Maritime Gloucester’s Goal to be a 21st Century Discovery and Education Center

Our new interactive fisheries exhibit, “Think Tank”, opened on June 8th, World Oceans Day!  Maritime Gloucester has purchased a large, interactive, multi-touch table that is equipped with an integrated PC and supports animation, video, audio, photographic data and educational games. Community members, visitors and students will be able to play an interactive, animated game on the table in which they will seek to influence the size of a fishery population based on a variety of factors.  The game is part of a new exhibit called “Think Tank” that is designed to welcome all to the table to have a conversation about the challenges one faces when managing fisheries.  Click here for full info.
