Event description:

A bi-weekly program, for everyone in the family, will be hosted by the Southampton Historical Museum. Learn a Whaler’s Skill is for moms, dads and kids to gain skills and knowledge of Southampton’s maritime past at either The Thomas Halsey Homestead or the Rogers Mansion Museum Complex. Families can learn how to tie sailing knots, create faux scrimshaw art, write with quill and ink pens and more. Through the physical action of these programs, you will be able to gain a better understanding of how these people lived in the 19th century. Each program also allows for interaction with real artifacts from the museum's collection. All 1-hour programs begin at 3pm and are free of charge. To sign up contact the Director of Education Connor Flanagan by calling 631-283-2494 x500 or emailing him at [email protected]
