Hokule’a at The Mariners’ Museum

October 18, 2016 - November 6, 2016

Hokule’a and her dry dock crew will be at The Mariners’ Museum to perform needed restoration on the 62’ voyaging canoe before she continues on her final leg of her worldwide voyage and returns to Hawaii. Hokule’a a can be viewed and photographed outside the lower exit of the Large Artifact Gallery of The USS Monitor Center. While the crew is hard at work, we will have periodic interpreters to answer questions and share information about Hokule’a’s voyage. Join us for the Farewell Ceremony on Saturday, November 5 at 10:00 AM, where we will celebrate Hokule’a’s journey with Polynesian performances!

Special thanks to Fairlead Integrated and Hampton Roads Crane and Rigging for transporting Hokule’a to and from her dry dock location at the Museum.
