Special Teacher Tour of Mystic Seaport's Newest Exhibit

SeaChange exhibit open to teachers only Wednesday, January 18, 4-6 p.m.

Mystic Seaport is offering teachers a free tour of a new exhibit. The SeaChange exhibit presents a range of objects from the past and gives glimpses into other people's lives in different places and times—from Arctic explorers to scientific surveyors charting the Atlantic coast on the eve of the American Revolution, western merchants trading for silk and tea in 1850s China, and laborers harvesting bird guano off Peru for American farmers.

The exhibit includes interactives that give you the chance to peek inside a 1740s ship model, test the principles behind dazzling WWI ship designs, and zoom in to see the tiny cuts on modern miniature figureheads.

Reserve your spot by emailing krystal.rose@mysticseaport.org or calling 860-572-0771, ext. 5025.
