The maritime heritage of Puget Sound and the Pacific Northwest is not just found in the history upon which the area was grown, but is a vital part of our everyday lives.  It is the culture that we have inherited and that we will pass on, reaching from transportation to recreation, and from industry to tourism.

Puget Sound Maritime has collected artifacts, archives, ship plans, and photographs to preserve maritime history and foster an appreciation for our maritime heritage.  Using social media, online and physical exhibits, publications, and presentations, we strive to connect the past to the present and ensure that our maritime heritage thrives.
