Date Idea, Kid Friendly, Lectures & Conferences
View the "Best of the Best!" at our 40th annual Model Ship Show. Attendees will have the opportunity to view the prize winning models from the last 5 years, partake in family activities including a scavenger hunt, learn how to get a ship into a bottle, observe a model ship restoration every Wednesday, and more! The model show is presented by the USS Constitution Museum and the USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild and is funded in part by the Boston Marine Society.
Meet a modeler – a great way to learn more!
Members of the Model Guild will be on hand (hours to be determined) to answer questions about the models on display and share tips and techniques of the trade, all while working on models of their own. Come with questions and curiosity and meet a modeler – it’s a great way to learn more!
Witness the restoration of a historic model
Watch professional ship model conservator Rob Napier clean and restore a late 19thcentury model of USS Constitution from the Museum’s collection that was built by one of her crew members. Every Wednesday, February 2 – March 23, 2019 from 10AM – 2PM.
