Sea Heroes Stories: Muskeget Lifesaving Station

Muskeget Coast Guard Station 1

Fire Could Not Keep Them Down

Join us at the Shipwreck and Lifesaving Museum for a talk about Nantucket's Sea Heroes of Muskeget! When the Muskeget Lifesaving Station burned down in 1894, the lifesaving crew quickly moved to the Station on Tuckernuck to continue saving those in peril in Nantucket's waters. Light bites and refreshments will be served.


We understand that plans change! Because we are a small non-profit, cancellations make it challenging for us to manage program enrollment. Tickets to all EMI programs are fully refundable up to three days before the scheduled program. Tickets are non-refundable if you cancel within 72 hours of the scheduled program. Tickets are eligible for an exchange before the date and time of the scheduled program. If you wish to reschedule, please contact us at

While EMI intends to provide all programming as scheduled, occasionally, we have to cancel or reschedule for unforeseen circumstances. In the event of a cancellation by us, we will make every effort to provide a ticket exchange at an amenable date and time to both parties and if we cannot, we will refund the purchase and credit the original payment method.
