About Egan Maritime Institute
Located at the historic Coffin School, the Egan Maritime Institute (eganmaritime.org) is the island’s only non-profit organization devoted exclusively to celebrating Nantucket’s seafaring heritage. They maintain a collection of contemporary and illustrative art, books, and artifacts including a commissioned series of paintings by contemporary British marine artist Rodney Charman that depict over 200 years of Nantucket history. Throughout the years, Egan Maritime sponsors ongoing displays, special exhibits and educational and entertaining speaker programs, often featuring local residents, on a variety of special interest topics relating to Nantucket’s maritime traditions, history, and culture. The Egan Maritime fulfills its mission by supporting the activities of its affiliates, the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum and Mill Hill Press, all based on Nantucket.
