Veterans Day Celebration 


November 11 - 14, 2020

The military has always been at the forefront of STEM research and advancements. Nov 11-14 we honor our Veterans who pioneered and progressed these fields.

Join us for a celebration of STEM learning as we honor the work our Veterans have done in science fields. Explore the Deep Sea in our Voyage to the Deep traveling exhibit, just like NOAA does, and learn about the work the Military and her veterans do to preserve our Chesapeake Bay. Step aboard the Last Battleship built by the US Navy and discover how veterans preserve this memorial. On Nov 14, you can even meet WW2 Reenactors on our WW2 ship telling the story of the tradesmen and women who built her and the men who served on her!

Please see day specific events below!

Nov 11 – 14, Veterans/Active Duty Service Members will receive half-off (50%) admission for COMBO tickets only at the Nauticus admissions desk. Discount applies to service members only, additional guests will need to purchase tickets online or at the admissions desk.
