Family Fun Weekend
Celebrate and honor our nation’s veterans at the USS Constitution Museum. Write letters to our troops for the holidays, decide whether you would sign on board USS Constitution during the War of 1812, and make a paper officer's hat to take home. Experience what life was like for our early naval forces in our hands-on, interactive exhibits.
On November 11th, silhouette artist Carol Lebeaux will be on hand to cut portrait silhouettes similar to those sailors may have brought aboard ship to remember their loved ones by. These make great holiday gifts! She can cut from live subjects or from profile photographs of people or pets. Call us at 617-426-1812 to make an advance registration. Walk-in appointments will be provided as available. Sittings last less than 5 minutes and you can take home your completed artwork in less than twenty minutes! Each silhouette is $33, duplicate cuts are available for $12 or free for Museum members.
