Among the objects in the museum were figureheads; model ships; "whaling implements, ... prints and pictures;" manuscripts;publications; and "curios and relics of the seafaring life of New England." Leaders of the museum included John Templeman Coolidge, Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow, Jr., and Robert B. Smith. In 1947 the museum merged into the Bostonian Society.
