Christmas at Sea Family Fun Day

Head to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic for a fun family ornament making day of mini-nautical wreath ornaments, mini-cork sailboats and cinnamon stick reindeer ornaments.

Before the 20th century, much of what is considered part of celebrating a modern Christmas such as presents, decorations, and specialty supplies, needed to be shipped by merchant ships over weeks and months to arrive before December. The crafts offered during the Christmas at Sea Family Fun Day are meant to call upon a time when Christmas tree ornaments were a relatively new idea and many early decorations were made by the families themselves.  Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, and make some crafts at the Maritime museum!

*All activities are included with museum admission. Crafts subject to change without notice.
