Join us on Saturday, October 17 from 5:00 – 6:00pm ET for a new virtual family program where participants can experience USS Constitution in a new way– as recruits on her historic gun crew! You will learn about the tools and teamwork required to make USS Constitution a successful warship and see behind-the-scenes areas on the Ship with a US Navy sailor. Then, put your training to the test by firing Alka-Seltzer® cannons at home, and observe the live firing of the Ship’s long gun at sunset. This program is designed for youth age 10 and up and their families.
This program costs $5.00 or $10.00 per family group. Program fees cover the cost of a supply kit needed to make and fire your own Alka-Seltzer® Cannon at home. You only need to purchase one kit per group. Program kits are available for pick up at the Museum during operating hours ($5.00) or delivery by mail ($10.00). At this time, registration is online and kits can only be purchased online:
Space is limited and registration is required for this program. Please complete a registration form below by Monday, October 12. After registration, you will receive an email confirming your place in the program, program kit delivery or pick up, and instructions for accessing the Zoom program. Questions?
