The story of the seas is as old as time itself. Ships represent the triumph of exploration and help shrink the world. Take the helm and sail into discovery.
Swab the deck
Ships Through the Ages hadn't been updated since the 1960's. Below are words from the exhibit content creator John Llewellyn:
"The Ships Gallery is undergoing a rebirth at MSI this year. Since the latest gallery was constructed in 1964, millions of visitors have seen our collection of amazing model ships. However the years have not been kind to the collection. So, we brought a team conservators on board to scientifically clean, study, and repair all of the existing models."
"Even better, the whole exhibit is being redefined and improved for the 21st-century. An all star MSI internal team is improving the cases, lighting, preservation, graphics and interpretive content for the exhibit. New ship models will bring the shipping story into the present day, while three amazing new dioramas will bring the story of the sea to life for MSI's visitors."
"Climb on deck and take the wheel in the new ships gallery, opening in November!"
