Star of India Family Overnight

Jun 22, 2019

The Maritime Museum of San Diego is proud to offer this unique opportunity to spend a night aboard the 1863 Star of India, the oldest active sailing ship in the world. Although we will not technically leave the dock, we will be embarking on an imaginary voyage to relive the lives and times of the many emigrant passengers in the Great Age of Sail.

Our Living History programs aboard the Star of India, which primarily serve elementary school classes, have proven to be so popular that we have adapted the format to suit the needs of families in order to let the public participate in this exciting experience. Our instructors will be in character and in costume, teaching various activities such as moving cargo and raising sails. Please keep in mind that the accommodations are also 19th century and can be likened to a camping trip.
