Saltwater Stories is a new permanent exhibit currently in development, and it will celebrate Long Island’s rich maritime history and culture.

Take a look behind the scenes while we develop this new exhibit. Like taking a long trip, there are many stops along the way from idea to installation. Sometimes, the process can take up to five years! Dive into what happened so far, from 2020 through Spring 2024. 

This project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Humanities New York.
