Message in a Bottle Exhibit

April 4 - April 24 2022

Nauticus Museum 1 Waterside Drive, Norfolk, VA

Have you ever found a message in a bottle and wondered where it came from? Questioned its meaning and wondered what happened to the sender?

Discovered by 2013 CNN Hero of the Year Chad Pregracke and his non-profit, Living Lands & Waters, the Message in a Bottle exhibition displays over 50 notes and bottles depicting the personal voices of everyday Americans found while cleaning up the country’s rivers.

Discover how Living Lands & Waters aids in the protection, preservation, and restoration of the natural environment of the nations’ major rivers and their watersheds through river cleanups and environmental conservation programs.

Come and wander through the collection and rediscover lost history in specially crafted boxes housing the bottles and their messaging.

On display from January 29 – April 24, 2022!
