Embark on a watery week of exploration and creation within the Museum. Discover fanciful sea creatures on ancient Greek vases, visit oceans to find paintings of shipyards, whaling, and shark attacks from around the world. Solve the mystery behind the boat models found in an ancient Egyptian tomb. Working in our studio classroom, create clay sea creatures, build boats, paint seascapes, and more.
