History After Hours: Fresh Ink

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been canceled. The Museum is temporarily closed and all public evening programs through April 30 have been canceled. For additional information, visit here.

Sailors, soldiers, and revolutionaries tattooed themselves to demonstrate patriotism, express camaraderie, and even identify their bodies in the event of death or capture. Join us at the Museum to learn about early American tattoo iconography and draft your own tattoo design. Board the Museum’s privateer sloop to learn how Revolutionary sailors tattooed signs and symbols on their bodies, learn their favorite subjects for tattoo art, and get a historic temporary tattoo of your own.

Experience the Revolution after dark with extended evening hours, full access to the Museum’s exhibits, lively happenings, and happy hour food and drink specials, featuring $4 beer from Yards Brewing Company and $6 wine.
