Prepare for battle against the British during April School Vacation Week! Step into the roles of the courageous crew who manned Constitution’s cannons – from the powder passer to the gun captain – all while learning about the science and teamwork required to fire a 24-pound long gun. Once the drill is complete, design your own ship in our Forest to Frigate exhibit and engage your family members in battle using our interactive Design Challenge game.
In recognition of One Boston Day and the return of the Boston Marathon Military Relay, a thank you writing station to Vietnam War veterans will be available in our “Old Ironsides” 1812 Discovery. Notes written throughout the week will be given to veterans and their families on May 18, 2018.
