Can't make it to the museum in person? No problem! Join us virtually for a special look at NMAS' newest permanent exhibit, "Sails Unfurled: The Dawn of the U.S. Navy." Come aboard a recreated lower deck of the USS Constitution and discover how early sailors lived and worked. This exhibit features the museum's oldest artifacts, including an embroidered 1840s seabag and an 18th century jabot. 

Check back soon to sign up for the event on Zoom.
