Calling All Hands for an Open House

Join us on Thursday, May 16th from 6pm to 8pm, for this year’s Boarding Party & Collections Open House, a fun-filled evening at the USS Constitution Museum! The open house will highlight the unique objects featured in the Museum’s new publication, Men of Iron: USS Constitution’s 1812 Crew.

This beautifully arranged and fully researched new book, developed by researchers of the Museum, recounts the lives and experiences of Constitution’s crew during the War of 1812. It features dozens of photographs of paintings, artifacts and letters – many of which reside at the Constitution Museum – that highlight and bring to life the lives of ordinary men who fought under extraordinary circumstances.

In addition, see some of the interesting artifacts acquired by the Museum over the past year, and also make your vote count in the Rum Challenge, sponsored by Privateer Rum, to help us select the 2013 Signature Drink for the USS Constitution Museum!

Sponsorship and ticket price directly support the USS Constitution Museum’s educational programming and collections. Tickets begin at $25. Men of Iron is also available in our online store at
