This summer season the Woods Hole Historical Museum will be offering two different walking tours of the village, both starting at the museum at 579 Woods Hole Road.
Every Tuesday in July and August at 3:30 PM there will be a tour led by Susan Pennington focusing on the history of Woods Hole. The walk will go down Water Street and around Eel Pond, and last about an hour.
A new tour focusing on science in Woods Hole takes place on Tuesday through Friday mornings starting at 10 AM, through August 22. The tour will inform visitors of the history and mission of the scientific institutions in the village, with brief overviews of the National Marine Fisheries Service, Marine Biological Laboratory, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The tour is supported by the Woods Hole Business Association and is free to guests at the local restaurants and hotels and all members of the business association.
Participants are encouraged to pre-register by calling the museum at 508-548-7270. They should plan to arrive at the museum at least 10 minutes before the tour starts. Both tours are free to members of the museum with a suggested donation of $5 for the general public.
