Learn about the 38th Voyage of the Charles W. Morgan as the ship sails on an unprecedented voyage to historic ports in New England this summer. Our new exhibition in the Mallory Exhibit Hall details the ship’s commemorative voyage and also explores the history, the restoration, and the significance of this national treasure.

Look at actual crew lists from the Morgan and see video footage that features the history, background, and sailing of the 1841 whaleship. Watch live broadcasts from this summer’s voyage on a large screen TV and see video programs that are created during the journey.

Listen to an audio program that features the sounds of whales, as well as modern and historical music about whales and whaling. Create your own art by making a rubbing of a whale scene and an origami whale. Leave your wish or thought for today’s whales on a 16-foot wire whale model. See 15 original illustrations by artist Andrew Glass that were created for the children’s book, Moby Dick: Chasing the Great White Whale, written by Eric A. Kimmel.
