'Steam And Splendor: Treasures From The Ocean Liner And Cruise Ship Ephemera Collection'
Maritime Museum of San Diego presents "Steam and Splendor: Treasures from the Ocean Liner and Cruise Ship Emphemera Collection"
Opening Friday, May 26 at Noon, and included free with general admission. Exhibit will remain open until Memorial Day weekend next year (2024).
"Steam and Splendor: Treausures from the Ocean Liner and Cruise Ship Emphemera Collection" is staged aboard the Gould Eddy gallery aboard the Museum’s elegant 1898 Victorian-era steam ferryboat Berkeley. The new exhibit transports visitors to a time when ocean travel was sedate, luxurious, and exclusive. The collection includes hidden treasures never displayed for the public and one of the largest of ocean liner and cruise ship ephemera in California. Journey back in time to the era of the great ocean liners of the 20th century – among them the Titanic, the Normandy, the SS United States, the Empress of Britain, and many others.
Visitors to the new exhibit will learn how passengers chose these destinations, purchased tickets, what they packed for their voyage, what they ate, where they slept and dined, and how they passed their time on board.
Exhibit entry is free with general admission. General admission self-guided tickets are $20.00 for adults, $15.00 for seniors/active military and ages 13-17 and $10 .00 for youth ages 12 and under. Ages 2 and under free.
