Our goals are to learn about lighthouses their purposes, architecture, history, stories of their keepers through art, to take a Lighthouse boat tour to see lights up close and to develop a student book of participant’s works to remember the experience. The child and her/his mentor will be learning about Lighthouses together and developing lifelong bonds using Lighthouses as a catalyst for creating lasting memories! As there are over 15,000 Lighthouses in the world, we are hoping a mutual interest will develop between a child and his/her mentor:

  • to possibly inspire a maritime career in a child
  • to learn together through art to work together using STEAM…

SS United States Exhibition Opens

This show will trace the life of the ship, from young speed queen and popular cover girl to aging star of yesteryear and nearly forgotten “has-been,” and finally — with your help — to one of the great comeback stories in U.S. history.

The exhibit will be on display at the National Lighthouse Museum June 14th- August 3rd and is free with your paid museum admission. Make plans to visit and celebrate the extraordinary career of the luxury liner known as “America’s Flagship.”
