The Cape Ann Museum, Essex Shipbuilding Museum and Maritime Gloucester are pleased to announce the launch of the Fish and Ships Pass, a multi-venue ticket that provides admission to all three venues for one price. The $18 pass saves adults and seniors more than 30% compared to full price. The passes will be on sale at all three venues through Labor Day, 2013.
This is not the first collaboration among these institutions. In 2009, the group, with the addition of Schooner Adventure, published the Fish and Ships brochure to encourage visitors interested in the area’s rich maritime history, both past and present, to explore what Cape Ann has to offer. The idea of a collaborative, multi-venue pass was also discussed, but never realized. This year, thanks to a nudge by Geoffrey Richon, founder and board member of Maritime Gloucester, the island's culturally curious visitors will have a chance to see three of Cape Ann’s best attractions at an unprecedented value. Accommodations and attractions are encouraged to promote the availability of the pass to their guests. The passes are good for seven (7) days from their first use at one of the museums.
