Opening Reception: For Those In Peril: Shipwrecks, Memorials, and Rescues
Join us for an opening party to celebrate Penobscot Marine Museum’s 2013 season, and our exhibit: For Those In Peril. This exhibit explores the shipwrecks and near misses; the perfect storms and sudden squalls; those lost at sea and the families left behind; and the brave lifesavers and brilliant marine equipment innovators. Through the Museum’s collection of marine art, portraits, photographs, lifesaving equipment, original manuscripts and logbooks, small watercraft, models, and navigational instruments, the stories of “those in peril” will come alive in the summer of 2013. Admission Free. Museum Gallery, 40 East Main Street, Searsport.
