The Maritime Museum of San Diego in California is set to open a new educational, entertaining, and interactive Sea Monsters Exhibit on Memorial Day weekend of 2022. The exhibit will be included in General Admission Museum tickets, serving as the "community memory of seafaring experience by collecting, preserving, and presenting our rich maritime heritage and historic connections with the Pacific world."
The Sea Monsters: Delving Into the Deep Myth Exhibit opens to the public Saturday, May 28, 2022 to take visitors on a journey through the end of the 19th Century, when a a daring world-exploring family boarded the Star of India for an expedition to investigate the existence of Sea Monsters in various parts of the world.
Wandering into deep hold of the Star, visitors will be greeted by sea monsters real and imaginary, inviting an aspect of human interaction with the unknown and the ongoing quest for knowledge of those monsters of the deep ocean. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore evidence of deep sea monster myths and a series of cultural projections that express humanity’s innermost fears, our search for answers, and the thrill of discovery that ultimately bring Sea Monsters to life for everyone…both real or imagined.
Join us at this all new Sea Monsters: Delving Into The Deep Myth Exhibit, sponsored by Pusser's Rum, that includes sea monsters real and imagined, from skeletal aquatic dinosaur replicas, to marine biological specimens, historic zoological hands-on immersive activities, and the nineteenth century Star of India.
