Franklin Fever Series Pt. 3: Bus Trip

March 14 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

Set sail with us for the third and final part of our Franklin series. In 2014 this most enduring of tales leapt back into headlines with the discovery of Franklin’s flagship, HMS Erebus, and two-years later when they unearthed the HMS Terror. This exhibition pulls together every strand of this epic history, including: expedition materials from London, the Inuit’s knowledge that led to the wrecks’ discoveries, and artifacts raised from the HMS Erebus – seen for the first time in 170 years. Enjoy an exclusive, behind-the-scenes Vault Tour of artifacts in the Collections Research Center led by Mystic Seaport Museum Curator, Fred Calabretta.
