As my time here at the Mariners’ Museum comes to a close, I’ve realized that I know our collection very well, but I only know a little about our exhibitions. I want to use my last couple of weeks here to discuss some of our exhibitions and explore them for myself! For my first one I looked at the Age of Exploration.
We all learn about the explorers who sailed the Atlantic in the 15th-17th centuries at a young age. Here at the Mariners’ Museum, we have a great collection of exploration artifacts and a VERY thorough explanation of this era in history. While the amount of stuff in the gallery may be a little overwhelming, there is a wealth of information to go with it.
