Be My Mariner

February 13, 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

Who doesn’t love a secret that only science can reveal?

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we want to share our love of science with you at The Mariners’ Museum and Park! Guests can make Valentine’s Day cards that contain a hidden message that will only be revealed when imaged with our Infrared Camera. Normally, this camera is used to analyze our objects or to unveil hidden quirks of an artist’s hand or past repairs.

After your Valentine card is complete, take it with you to deliver to your special someone. Then the fun and neat surprise begins for your Valentine — decode the secret message by finding the IR image of the card you designed only on The Mariners’ Museum and Park’s Facebook page! 

Come make a science inspired Valentine for a friend, family member or your favorite mariner!
