Ships, Sailors and Sounds of the Sea

Celebrating Washington's Maritime History

Set sail to the Washington State History Museum for Ships, Sailors and Sounds of the Sea, a special family program celebrating Washington's maritime history.

Come and meet two local authors as they present stories and images from books they have written about ships and the sea. Chuck Fowler is the author of "Tall Ships on Puget Sound," which tells the history of the tall sailing ships that came to the Pacific Northwest beginning in the mid-1700s. Children's book author Deb Lund wrote "Dinosailors," about the funny adventures of a crew of novice dinosailors as they set sail, only to find that something even better waits for them back home.

Catch a performance of the Whidbey Island singing group, The Shifty Sailors, who inspired the book "Dinosailors." They will perform a selection of the traditional and fun sea shanties sung by sailors at sea. The group has released four CDs, including "H is for aHoy."

Programs will run throughout the day starting at 11 AM. This event is FREE with museum admission.
