Family Fun Days at the Custom House Maritime Museum

The Custom House Maritime Museum announces Family Fun Days, a special program for school vacation week, February 16 – 19, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Family Fun Days are a wonderful way for parents, children, and students of every age to learn more about Newburyport maritime history while participating in various activities and games.

During Family Fun Days admission is free for children accompanied by an adult!

Scavenger hunts, signal flag word games, story telling, learning about nautical equipment and tying sailor’s knots are just some of the activities offered. There is something for everyone, including family photographs for the Custom House Facebook page, music, movies and prizes.

“We’ve designed this special event during February vacation week to be an informative, educational and of course, a fun experience for the whole family,” said Jason Roberts of the Custom House Maritime Museum, adding “What better way to spend some time during the February school break than by visiting the Custom House Maritime Museum.”
