The mission of the Kittery Historical and Naval Society is:
to encourage the study of local history... and to operate a public museum to display its collections.

We are an independent, non-profit organization, managed by a crew of volunteers. We appreciate Kittery, and we enjoy learning about its colorful history, collecting its artifacts, and telling its stories. We try to make friends, welcome visitors, and enrich our culture.

There are many ways to fit in here, such as:

Can you help out at the Museum for a couple of hours a week? This is a perfect way to share Kittery's history, learn more about it, and really be one of the crew.

We can engage your skills, experience and knowledge... or provide an easy task with no experience needed. Open season is our most active time, from April through October. Scheduling is flexible.

Let's talk! We have multiple roles. If you are interested in applying, please leave a phone message or send us an e-mail. Contact:
