The Woods Hole Museum is a small lively museum that celebrates this fishing village’s unique history. The main building, the Bradley House, contains a diorama of the village; revolving exhibits focus on local history, such as old Woods Hole businesses or the Woods Hole Science School. The Swift Barn, built in 1877 by E. E. Swift for $80.71, houses a small boat museum. Displays include an 1890s Woods Hole Spritsail, a Herreshoff 12 1/2 sailboat, and other maritime artifacts and models. In summer there’s a boat-building class for families. The Yale Workshop houses a re-creation of the workshop of a local pediatrician, Dr. Leroy Milton Yale Jr., who was an accomplished artist and fly fisherman who made his own rods and flies. The museum hosts walking tours on Tuesdays at 3:30pm in July and August.
