The Museum is dedicated to the preservation of the history of the United States Coast Guard and its predecessor organizations. In addition to USCG history, the location includes the Oldest Wooden Jail in America and the Village Blacksmith Shop.

The Coast Guard Heritage Museum has two floors of exhibit space. The first floor features the origins of the Coast Guard, beginning with the Revenue Cutter Service in 1790, U. S. Life-saving Service, and the Massachusetts Humane Society.

This year, in honor of the 60th anniversary of the greatest small boat rescue in USCG history, a special exhibit features the heroes of the Pendleton and Fort Mercer rescues.

The museum Gift Shop, containing a variety of books, videos and artwork is also located on the first floor.
