Winter’s Aweigh

February 13 - February 15

Children receive free admission!

Join us as we celebrate the winter season during Presidents’ Day Weekend. All children ages 17 and younger will receive free admission when accompanied by a paying adult.

Watch as three breeds of winter working dogs demonstrate various work tasks: Newfoundlands will visit Saturday, February 13; Saint Bernards will be on grounds Sunday, February 14; and Malamutes will visit Monday, February 15.

Explore the Museum’s 19th-century seafaring village and exhibits, including the award-winning “Ships, Clocks & Stars” and “Voyaging in the Wake of the Whalers.” Try your hand at a 19th-century printing press and create a winter scene. Explore the winter sky inside the Treworgy Planetarium and learn how mariners navigated the seas guided by the stars.
