Christmas on the Monitor

December 12, 2015 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST

Christmas Monitor

Climb aboard the Monitor to enjoy a meal and experience daily life of the enlisted men and officers of the famed ironclad warship. Dine as an Officer or a Crew Member, and experience the typical meal of a sailor. With a drink in hand (whiskey grog, of course!) interact with costumed reenactors who will demonstrate 1860’s sailor skill and who will provide interpretation before the dinner. The evening will conclude with a cannon firing! More surprises are in store for those who attend, including door prizes and a raffle. Period dress or cocktail attire is recommended.


  • Officers: $100 per person (unlimited drinks, assigned seating, and a plated meal)
  • Reserved Officer’s Table for eight: $1,000
  • Crew: $55 per person (2 drink tickets and a mess style meal)
