In 1930, Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington founded The Mariners' Museum to illuminate mankind's experience with the sea and the events that shaped the course of civilization. Today, it is one of the nation's largest maritime museums, with more than thirty-two thousand works of art and artifacts, 550 acres of pristine parkland, and an extended library and archives. This official commemorative guide celebrates the history of seafaring as told through the Museum's collection of three-dimensional objects, fine art, and rare artifacts. With compelling images and engaging text, the book explores maritime culture, science, and history, inviting readers to discover their own relationship with the sea.
