Battle of Hampton Roads Weekend

March 9 - March 11

Modern Marvels: Technology in the Civil War

Weekend commemorates 156 years since Battle of the Ironclads

On March 9 – 11, The Mariners’ Museum and Park will commemorate the Civil War Battle that changed modern naval history forever. The Battle of Hampton Roads—when the Union ironclad USS Monitor fought the Confederate ironclad CSS Virginia to a draw—proved the supremacy of iron to wood. One hundred and fifty-six years later, the Museum remembers the Battle with a weekend full of family-friendly activities, living history encampments, special events, lectures, and more! This year, in addition to the Battle itself, the weekend will focus on technology in the Civil War.
