Mermaids and Monsters - Maritime Museum Discovery Day

Maritime Museum and Occupation Tapestry Gallery

Event Overview

The open sea is a mysterious place. Miles from shore on storm-tossed seas, with nothing but water in all directions – including straight down-a sailor or fisherman cannot help but wonder what lurks in the depths. When the oceans were still unexplored, these fears often took the form of mermaids and monsters. Join us at the Maritime Museum where we’ll be creating some monsters of our own.
