Masters of Miniature: The 39th Annual Model Ship Show

Masters of Miniature: The 39th Annual Model Ship Show.
Saturday, February 3, 2018 to Saturday, March 24, 2018

The USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild and the USS Constitution Museum present Masters of Miniature. With handcrafted models of all sizes, types, and materials, you can explore the intricate art of model making as practiced today. Explore the show through our scavenger hunt or join in the fun of a hands-on activity – either way, a visit to the museum and the show is a great way for your family to spend the day!

Members of the model guild will be on hand (hours to be determined) to answer questions about the models on display and share tips and techniques of the trade, all while working on models of their own. Come with questions and curiosity and meet a modeler – it’s a great way to learn more!

Watch professional ship model conservator Rob Napier clean and restore a late 19th-century model of USS CONSTITUTION from the museum’s collection that was built by one of her crew members. Every Wednesday, February 3 – March 24, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

For special programming and activities, check the Museum’s Calendar of Events. Admission to the museum and the model show is by donation; daily 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
