Unveiling of the Wanderer Model

The Mattapoisett Museum, 5 Church Street invites the public on Sunday, May 19, from 2 to 4 pm to view the Unveiling of the Wanderer Model created by Master model shipbuilder George Lowery. Mr. Lowery will be in attendance and will give a brief presentation about the model and how he built it. The Wanderer model took over 2,000 hours of painstaking labor to complete and is authentic down to the smallest detail. Worth over $90,000, the Museum is grateful to be able to add it to its collections and to share it with the public. It will be the centerpiece of this summer’s exhibit.

            In celebration of this event, the Museum will host a group of Sea Shanty Chorus singers who will perform songs that were sung in 1924 at the “Sea Service” on board the Wanderer the day she departed on her last voyage. Refreshments will be served.
