Female education curator preps for a seafood program at the museum

In-person programming resumes

We are excited to let everyone know that some of our in-person programming will soon resume!

The education department has programming for both adults and children, starting with our seasonal favorite Salty Dog Saturday cooking series (21+ years old). These cooking classes are held on the first Saturday of each month. Each class highlights a different seafood and features a quick lesson and a delicious meal. Water and tea are available, or feel free to bring you favorite beverage. The fee is $25 per participant, and pre-registration is required.

New to our educational programming lineup are Salty Dog Summer Camps for ages 18 and up. The classes are held on the third Saturday of each month and include a lecture, some hands-on learning, and community engagement. Camp is $15 per participant, and pre-registration is required. All registration is online and tree-free.

Sign up your youngster for Little Mariner (4-6 years old) or First Mate (7-12 years old) camps. These well-loved programs return in-person and will look similar to previous summers. Little Mariners occur bi-monthly on Wednesdays for one hour. Topics are different on each date and are $7 per participant. Please remember that an adult must stay for the duration of the program. First Mate camps are offered on opposite weeks of Little Mariners and run 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. for four days. Each multi-day camp focuses on one aspect of the maritime community. These camps are $45 per participant and require a packed lunch.

All summer programs will abide by current North Carolina COVID-19 restrictions.
