The History Happy Hour series mixes maritime history with everyday fun by giving guests an opportunity to grab a drink and check out our museum exhibits after hours, while also providing an exclusive experience to interact with history.
History Happy Hour: Sailor Stories is the first in what the museum hopes will be a series of events offering themed, after-hour access to the museum and its various exhibits. The event costs $25 for members or $30 for non-members and includes drinks, light snacks, and interactive storytelling while touring the Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship after-hours.
Tickets are timed and we ask guests to arrive within 15 minutes of their chosen time to help with crowd control. Guests should anticipate 1 – 1 1/2 hours to fully enjoy the complete experience.
