Sailor Souvenirs: Tides of Cultural Exchange

March 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sarah Timm, Manager of Interpretation at Maine Maritime Museum, will discuss objects from MMM's collection that were collected by 19th century Maine captains and crews during their stops in ports around the world during a period of rapid globalized trade. The souvenirs Maine sailors chose to bring home often tell us more about an American worldview than the cultures they are intended to represent. Explore themes of authenticity, cultural appropriation, and the effects of cultural exchange by tracing how these souvenirs transformed in meaning and function once they arrived to American shores.   Members $3; nonmembers $5 This is a Zoom event.

SOLD OUT Build Your Own Mini Sea Chest

March 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington Street
Bath, ME 04530 United States

Ships are cramped spaces and sailors had little room to store their personal things, usually no bigger than a suitcase. This hands-on learning workshop will sharpen your family's math and creative skills. Together, families will learn about what sailors took on their long journeys and how they personalized their chests to reflect their adventures. Then families will work together to construct and decorate their own mini sea chests. All ages are welcome--content level is appropriate for ages 5+. Space is limited to 16 participants. Preregistration is advised to guarantee availability. Masks are required for everyone 5 years and older, and strongly encouraged for those aged 2-4. Tickets include museum admission. STEAMbox Family Workshops are designed to integrate STEM and creative arts skills into a cohesive and hands-on learning experience.
