In November of 1620, the pilgrims aboard the Mayflower completed their 66 day journey from England to Cape Cod. We are celebrating their monumental passage to America on Sat., Nov. 14 with several maritime activities. You and your family are sure to enjoy learning about the significance of the voyage, how 17th century shipwrights and seafarers waterproofed their ships and the science of sailing. At the end of the day, you can put your skills as a shipwright to the test and build your own vessel out of KEVA blocks.
