Voyages Family Fun Series

This series, presented in conjunction with the Saco Museum’s major exhibition Voyages and the Age of Sail, will give you and your family four great reasons to visit the Saco Museum this summer! On four days in July and August 2011, you can learn how to tie different nautical knots, learn about sunken treasure and shipwrecks around Wood Island Light, listen to sea shanties, and examine the art of the sea and take home your own maritime art creation. All of these programs are FREE for children and their families!
