AAA Editor Notes
Lightship Portsmouth Museum is at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Museum at London and Water sts. This former Coast Guard lightship was one of many used to assist mariners in navigating dangerous shoals at night. With lights attached to their masts, lightships were anchored in strategic locations off the coast. Museum exhibits include artifacts relating to lightship service, photographs, uniforms and Coast Guard equipment as well as realistically interpreted officers’ and crews’ quarters.
