Winter’s Aweigh

Children receive free admission!

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

Watch as three breeds of winter working dogs (Newfoundlands, Malamutes, and St. Bernards) demonstrate various work tasks. 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.” Climb aboard historic vessels and see a planetarium show.

Special activities for children include arts and craft projects, songs and musical activities, and games of long ago. Children can also stop by the Children’s Museum for story time, explore a sea chest, and get a kids’-eye view of the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan.
