Cold War Travelling Sea Chest-Need to Zoom
Civl War Sea Chest & Cold War Sea Bag
Our museum offers two FREE traveling trunks that can be delivered to your school for one week during the school year. 
Our Civil War Sea Chest contains a variety of Civil War Navy reproductions such as objects, photographs, newspapers, uniforms and more that you can use to teach the Civil War (with a special focus on the Battle of Hampton Roads) to your students.
Our Cold War Sea Bag contains Navy-related Cold War era artifacts, photographs, newspaper articles, uniforms and more. The bag especially focuses on the Navy's role in the Vietnam War and includes oral histories from local Vietnam veterans. Both travelling trunks contain detailed guides to using the artifacts in the classroom setting.
