Sailor's Sea Chest (Pre K)

This is a hands-on program for pre-school students, discovering the everyday life of an early-nineteenth-century sailor.

Students will touch and interpret objects that sailors used in their daily lives at sea. Reproductions of a mess kit, uniform, pipe, and other items fill this sea chest.

For information on docent-led educational programs, call the Director of Education and Public Programs at (202) 433-6826.
