The Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum offers four galleries in which collections are exhibited in both permanent and changing formats. These images illustrate the variety of the permanent collections, which are organized thematically to include such areas as whaling implements and related artifacts, children’s toys, and nineteenth century household objects. Interspersed throughout these exhibits are important portraits of ship’s captains and their wives executed by local artists, examples of fine furniture such as an eighteenth century chest-on-stand crafted by the Easthampton-based Dominy family, and souvenirs of the whaling trades.

An Orientation Gallery, which occupies a central corridor behind the main entrance hall, provides visitors with an historical overview to Sag Harbor, the Whaling Era and occupants of the benjamin Huntting II house.

The gallery devoted to changing exhibits is located in the fancy parlor or formal salon to the right of the entrance hall. For current exhibits, please refer to Exhibits.
