The Battle of Stonington, the history of the lighthouse, the town’s maritime industries, icemaking and the Stonington’s historical importance as a railroad and steamship hub are a focus of the tours.

Two temporary exhibits—The Raven’s Wing, the story of Captain York of Westerly, and “Steaming Out of Stonington”—will also be featured.

Guided tours of the museum will be held at noon on Mondays and Fridays.
