Many of the artifacts you see here can be seen at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Virginia.
The Mariners' Museum, one of the largest international maritime museums in the world, is
dedicated to "preserving and interpreting the culture of the sea and its tributaries,
its conquest by man, and its influence on civilization." It is a nonprofit, educational
institution sponsored in part by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
and has been accredited since 1972 by the American Association of Museums.
