Woods Hole Historical Museum: Model Boat Show
April 13 - April 14$12
The Woods Hole Historical Museum’s biennial Model Boat Show will be held on Patriot’s Day Weekend, April 13-14th, 2019. This will be the 10th biennial Model Boat Show, a festive and impressive way of marking the end of winter. The Show was started by sailors who love boats, but find April too early to work on a boat in the yard or to go sailing. But the model boats are just right to satisfy a craving for things nautical in the very early spring. These people come to the Show in droves to celebrate the art and craft of boats built on a small scale, and some are lucky enough to be offered a chance to sail one of the radio-controlled boats in Eel Pond.
This is the tenth time the Museum has held this festive event, and it is rumored to be the last of a good run, so if you have been meaning to attend but have never gotten around to it, be sure to come this year. Tickets, which are good for both days, are $ 12 for adults, $ 5 for kids, or $25 maximum for nuclear families.
Anyone who builds model boats and who would like to exhibit at this festive event should either call the Museum at 508-548-7270 or email [email protected] Anyone who has ever been tempted to attend should come this year to be sure to be part of this celebration of boats built on a small scale.
