Welcome to the Osterville Historical Museum--home of the Crosby Boats!
We are dedicated to preserving the history of the village of Osterville. Located near the charming seaside, the Museum complex sits on lovely grounds which are highlighted by an 18th century herbal garden and a 19th century ornamental garden. The Museum's permanent collection includes period decorative arts, furniture, ceramics, and nine full-sized wooden boats. The two-acre campus sits on a quiet street--a perfect spot to enjoy a picnic lunch or a cup of coffee with free WiFi on a sunny day.
