Hull Lifesaving Museum

Activity Overview

The Hull Lifesaving Museum is a unique attraction located in Hull, Massachusetts, which is just 20 miles outside of Boston. It is located inside of the former Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, which was led by a man named Joshua James who is considered to be the father of the U.S. Coast Guard. The museum features a wide variety of exhibits related to marine history and lifesaving techniques, including a popular hands-on children's exhibit.
