Monitor Collection Storage Open House

March 9, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM EST

So, where do USS Monitor artifacts go after they are conserved? Many of the objects go out on display within the USS Monitor Center and at other institutions around the country, but a large majority remain housed in a dedicated storage and research area within the Batten Conservation Complex here at the Mariners’. This area is usually closed to visitors; however, for Saturday only, the doors to the storage area will be open to the public. Come learn how the treasured artifacts are cared for after conservation and view unique objects not often seen by the general public!
