Adventure is out there! Toys Ahoy! A Maritime Childhood is a new and fun exhibition that connects the young and the young at heart.
Most people may not think of toys as museum artifacts, but the toys are a reflection of our ideas of play and childhood. With 80 different items on display to excite everyone of all ages, this collection includes:
interactive board games, card games, puzzles
toys, such as wood and paper battleships and motorized miniature engines
and many other historic toys and collectibles from years gone by
Visitors can also partake in many fun activities to fulfill their inner kid joy, such as designing your own toy boat, playing an interactive game inspired by the Battle of Hampton Roads, taking pictures dressed to the nines in pirate play clothes, listening to stories, and learning about amazing facts from toy collectors and designers, and more!
For the holiday season, the Museum is proud to sponsor a maritime toy drive in conjunction with “Toys for Tots.”
Come explore your childhood again and delight in this wonderful exhibition as you stroll down memory lane with Toys Ahoy! You can’t help but smile and laugh as you reminisce over the incredible items that connect our past to the present, and maybe even get a glimpse into the future at America’s National Maritime Museum!
