The Hull Lifesaving Museum is so much more than a museum. Founded in 1978, we are an essential part of the community that for over 40 years has provided not only crucial lessons from our maritime heritage, but also life-changing and sometimes life-saving youth development experiences. Our mission celebrates the lifesaving spirit of Skills, Courage, and Caring, and the relevance of our history to our constituents' daily lives. As one of our region's leading cultural organizations and agents of social change, HLM challenges its participants to draw the best from themselves by combining social services and experiential education with historical preservation and interpretation. HLM's year-round education and recreation programs, serving a diverse constituency, 75% of whom are underserved youth from metropolitan Boston, are broadly recognized as best practice models. HLM's program design respects the needs, expectations, and skill level of each participant.
Dramatically situated at the mouth of Boston Harbor, with breathtaking views of Boston Light and the Graves Lighthouse, the museum is located in the restored 19th century Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, home of Joshua James and his crews, the most celebrated lifesavers in the world.
