This is a small, interesting museum. The guides do a great job of explaining the history of lifesaving and stories behind the many rescues -- and tragedies -- through the centuries.

Please have take, the tour with the guide at the door. The young man, was very informative, and learned SO much more, than if we had just did the self tour. A part of history I knew nothing about.

The Hull Lifesaving Museum is a jewell for history buffs and novices alike on the south shore. The place is neat and clean and packed with tons of historical artifacts, photos, and articles about a lifestyle long passed.

Got to tour it for free when there was an art exhibit in it. Quaint. Interesting. A great thing to do when you don't have a whole day.
