The Mariners' Gallery Crawl

September 16, 2017 • 6:30 PM – 10:00 PM

Join us for the third annual Gallery Crawl as we discover the “Secret Life of Objects” as you sip, savor, and explore the Museum.

From the mysterious tuft of hair found in the locket of Matthew Fontaine Maury, father of modern oceanography, to the revelation of a second painting hidden behind the original of the US survey steamer, Walker by William A.K. Martin. You will marvel and be amazed by the discoveries of our collection, curators and collection experts.

Experience these rare artifacts, up-close and personal and hear the telling and scandalous secrets that will have you gasping with delight. Enjoy delicious bites and spirited beverages as your Gallery Crawl Guide transports you through each fascinating gallery and into another time.

Bring your clients, business associates, co-workers, family and friends to this once-in-a-lifetime and unforgettable experience!

Save the date, and don’t miss your chance to learn the secrets of the Museum! Sponsorships and tickets available now. Tickets include a commemorative glass, heavy hors d’oeuvres, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic beverages.

Tickets are $60 in advance, and $65 day-of the event.
