Celebrating 20 Years at the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum

2020 Celebrates 20 Years of the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum!

When it is safe to open, please come and visit us as we applaud “Weaving in Isolation, Creating Art During Times Apart”.  From long ago on Lightships stationed at sea for months on end to a present day astronaut in space and weavers sequestered at home, the 2020 exhibit will feature the unique art of basket weaving in solitude, both then and now.

Stay tuned for a confirmed opening date and future events and celebrations.

2020 Baskets & Bubbly

Back by popular demand, the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum’s Baskets & Bubbly Auction is going virtual for 2020!

The Baskets & Bubbly event is a top fundraiser for the museum. All proceeds raised will go a long way in helping the museum promote the awareness and appreciation of lightship baskets and their makers.

Bidding starts Wednesday August 1st at 8am and closes Sunday August 9th at 8pm.
