In the summer of 2014, Mystic Seaport (the Museum of America and the Sea) took the world’s last remaining wooden whaleship, the CHARLES W. MORGAN, back to sea. Following a five-year restoration, the Charles W. Morgan sailed on her 38th Voyage to New England ports-of-call. Visiting some of the same ports frequented during her whaling days, the MORGAN now raises awareness of America’s maritime heritage and calls attention to issues of ocean sustainability and conservation. . Explore the Museum’s new exhibition “The Charles W Morgan Sails Again” and learn more about this unprecedented voyage and national treasure.
The exhibit ran from February 13, – April 5, 2015, and is made possible by the Friends of the LA Maritime Museum and Mystic Seaport.
