Walk Through Cape Ann's Past and Present
At the Cape Ann Museum, you can learn about Gloucester's fishing industry, Rockport's granite quarries, as well as the art and artists inspired by the Cape Ann landscape.
Cape Ann boasts a rich and varied culture of nationally significant historical, industrial, and artistic achievement. The Museum's fine art collection includes the largest grouping of works by native son and renowned marine artist, Fitz Henry Lane, as well as work by other prominent painters and sculptors who lived on, visited or were inspired by Cape Ann. The work of contemporary Cape Ann artists is also collected and exhibited. The permanent collection includes fine and decorative arts, and artifacts from the major industries of the area—the fisheries and granite quarrying.
