Sea Dogs! Exhibit Opening

We are thrilled to welcome Sea Dogs! Great Tails of the Sea, a traveling exhibit on loa n from Mystic Seaport Museum that celebrates the special relationship shared by humans and dogs who live and work by the sea. For centuries dogs have offered comfort, companionship, and search and rescue assistance to crews in the often cold, lonely, and dangerous work of guarding the coast.

Sea Dogs! includes funny, compelling, and touching artifacts, photographs, film clips, newspaper reports, original art, children's books, as well as a fun climb-on boat, All Paws On Deck. Highlighted in Sea Dogs! are breeds, such as Newfoundlands and Portuguese Water Dogs, specifically bred for their work on the water, as well as dogs who have served alongside humans "manning" lighthouses, Coast Guard beach patrols, boats, and stations just like our own Point Allerton Station, where a loyal sea dog was immortalized in 19th century photographs alongside Joshua James and his crew.

Sea Dogs! will be on exhibit through September 2006, with a full schedule of family activities.  Please call for details, 781-925-5433.
