Newburyport Clipper Ship Museum


This museum has compiled as much information as possible to understand the rather short lived but breathtaking rise of the Clipper Ship. The image of these magnificent vessels has forever been emblazoned into the psyche of the world's people and just about every nation has tried to have an official sailing vessel as grand as anything that Donald McKay could build.
