Plan to visit for the newest exhibit
opening Summer 2021
Imagine the terror of feeling the ship shudder as it runs aground on
an unseen sandbar while towering waves crash over the hull and
fierce winds whip around you. The twisting and pounding of the ship’s

into the rigging, and the broken hull spills its contents into the sea.
