      EVENT DETAILS
      All Hands on Deck: A Sailor's Life in 1812

      'All Hands on Deck: A Sailor's Life in 1812' is a hands-on, minds-on exhibition where families can step into the shoes of a sailor by furling a sail, firing a canon, scrubbing a deck, and snoozing in a hammock.

      Sailors from the past, represented in full-scale photographic cut outs, convey the emotional highs and lows of life at sea through first person narrative.

      The exhibition is designed to encourage families to make personal connections and to promote conversation among family members about what each might have felt or done if he or she was a Constitution sailor in 1812.
