Masters of Miniature: 39th Annual Model Ship Show

February 3, 2018 - March 24, 2018

The USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild and the USS Constitution Museum present Masters of Miniature.  With handcrafted models of all sizes, types, and materials, you can explore the intricate art of model making as practiced today.  Explore the show through our scavenger hunt or join in the fun of a hands-on activity – either way, a visit to the Museum and the show is a great way for your family to spend the day!  Admission to the Museum and Model Show are by suggested donation.

 

Meet a modeler – a great way to learn more!

Members of the Model Guild will be on hand (hours to be determined) to answer questions about the models on display and share tips and techniques of the trade, all while working on models of their own. Come with questions and curiosity and meet a modeler – it’s a great way to learn more!
