Toys Ahoy! is a new and fun exhibit that connects the young and the young at heart. Join us for an opening day celebration filled with fun, and playful, activities for the whole family! All activities are FREE with $1 admission. Enjoy Rain Gutter Regatta racing, build your own sail, make your own pirate, and lots more. At 1 p.m., there will be a special maritime story and craft. 

With almost 100 different items on display such as children’s books, games and toys, this exhibit will excite everyone of all ages! The collection includes wood and paper battleships, board games, puzzles, motorized miniature engines and other historic toys and collectibles from years gone by.

For the holiday season, the Museum is sponsoring a maritime toy drive in conjunction with “Toys for Tots”, so please consider bringing an unwrapped toy for a child in need. 

Come explore your childhood again and delight in this wonderful exhibit as we take you down memory lane with Toys Ahoy! at “America’s National Maritime Museum!”
