In celebration of the opening of our new, dramatically different Thompson Exhibition Building, the SeaChange exhibit presents a range of beautiful and surprising objects from Mystic Seaport’s rich collections. Each is a survivor of the past and gives glimpses into other people’s lives in different places and times - from scientific surveyors charting the Atlantic coast on the eve of the American Revolution to western merchants trading for silk and tea in 1850s China, from Arctic explorers to laborers harvesting bird guano off Peru for American farmers. Together they speak to larger transformations that continue to shape our times. The exhibit includes interactives that give you the chance to peek inside a 1740s shipmodel, test the principles behind dazzling WWI ship designs, and zoom-in to see the tiny cuts on modern miniature figureheads.
Join Director of Exhibits Elysa Engleman as she gives a special teacher tour of this stunning new exhibit.
