“Get a taste of marine history including the Merrimac and the Monitor and the Battle of Hampton Roads during the Civil War. A new exhibit of the America's Cup includes a huge catamaran from the 2013 America's Cup. I still remember the fascinating Ship Model Gallery from my childhood. It made quite an impression --tiny ships in great detail. Admission is only $1 from Memorial Day to Labor Day. ”
