Hands-On History

February 23, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

Join The Mariners’ Museum and Park during the month of February as we celebrate Black History Month through programs, living history, lectures, and hands-on activities for children and adults. All programs are free with $1 Museum admission.

Are you the type of museum guest who routinely bangs your forehead on a glass case while trying to get a closer look at an object (or artifact)? Enjoy our Hands on History program and feel the weight of a cannonball, try on a sailors palm, or closely examine the fine lines of a piece of scrimshaw. These are just a few of the objects you’ll experience! For the month of February, this program will relate to African and African American culture and history.
