Our goals are to learn about lighthouses their purposes, architecture, history, stories of their keepers through art, to take a Lighthouse boat tour to see lights up close and to develop a student book of participant’s works to remember the experience. The child and her/his mentor will be learning about Lighthouses together and developing lifelong bonds using Lighthouses as a catalyst for creating lasting memories! As there are over 15,000 Lighthouses in the world, we are hoping a mutual interest will develop between a child and his/her mentor:

  • to see and climb lights together
  • to possibly inspire a maritime career in a child
  • to learn together through art to work together using STEAM…

SS United States Exhibition Opens

The National Lighthouse Museum proudly presents, in partnership with the New York Chapter of the SS United States Conservancy, “Full Speed Ahead to the Fabulous! SS United States.” This exhibit, on display at the National Lighthouse Museum June 14th- August 3rd, celebrates the extraordinary career of the luxury liner known as “America’s Flagship.”

Poster by New York Chapter co-chair Paul Stipkovich.

Don’t miss the exhibition’s grand opening! The event will kick off on Thursday, June 14th at 6:30 PM and will be followed by a screening of the recently discovered short film “Colossus on the River” (1965; Runtime approx. 15 min).

Admission $10 (all proceeds go to support the National Lighthouse Museum and the SS United States Conservancy)

This show will trace the life of the ship, from young speed queen and popular cover girl to aging star of yesteryear and nearly forgotten “has-been,” and finally — with your help — to one of the great comeback stories in U.S. history.
