Civil War Discussions

Visit the Museum on select Friday afternoons at 12:30 p.m. to enjoy lunch in The Mariners’ Park Café and engage in a stimulating Civil War discussion with renowned historian John Quarstein.

There is no charge to participate. Bring your own lunch, or enjoy the fabulous offerings from our café!

We are taking additional time to reopen our Museum galleries to ensure
