Experience Some of Nantucket from Home

During these challenging times, the far-away island of Nantucket may seem even farther. We are looking forward to when we will all once again be able to enjoy Nantucket and its historical and natural treasures. In the meantime here are some online resources that enable you to experience some of Nantucket from your home.  Stay safe, looking forward to seeing you again.

Nantucket Historical Association

The NHA website has always been a great online resource for those looking for insight into Nantucket’s fascinating past.


The NHA youtube page includes hundreds of historical videos including symposiums, documentaries, and historical films. Their latest film, Nantucket – A Film By Ric Burns “serves as a transformative gateway experience for today's island visitor. It chronicles the vibrancy of Nantucket's history, from its original Wampanoag Native American population and early Quaker culture to its international significance as the whaling capital of the world and eventual rebirth as an art and resort colony.” The film was created exclusively for NHA by Ric Burns.
