Virtual Maritime Mondays

September 20, 2021

Lauren T. Furey

Today’s program is CANCELLED

Fun for both children and caregivers, enjoy a book reading with Lauren Furey, manager of visitor engagement, and discover an interesting artifact from our Museum’s Collection.

Designed for children from 18 months to 8 years, Lauren takes you and your little mariners on a journey to show how we are all connected to the world’s waters.

Be sure to register in advance, and join us for a new book every week!



Mail by the Pail

Written by Colin Bergel

Mary’s father works for a lake freighter on Lake Michigan, and will not be home for his birthday this year. Mary wants to send him a card, but it can’t be delivered by a mail carrier like other letters. Her father gets his mail by a pail. Come hear a delightful story that illustrates the mail delivery system for Great Lakes freighters.


Pre-registration for this program is required.
In an effort to serve you better, we have updated the process to sign up for any of our free virtual programs through the Mariners’ database platform. For more information or help, contact: [email protected].
