Discover the NHA
2017 ALL-ACCESS PASS
The All-Access Pass makes visiting the Whaling Museum and historic sites easier than ever!
Your All-Access Pass is good for one visit to each of the following sites in 2017
Keep in mind that you can revisit the same site as many times as you like on the same day. So you can join us for a viewing of the Nantucket film at the museum in the morning, grab a bite to eat at your favorite downtown restaurant for lunch, and come back to museum that same afternoon to see a gallery tour or enjoy the view from the rooftop deck - all on the same ticket!
