Megan D Vintage Schooner is Open!
Hands On is known for its unique and engaging exhibits and we are so excited to bring the Megan D, a vintage 56′ schooner exhibit to the Museum’s re-created Puget Sound Beach. This vessel is designed to spark a child’s imagination of sea-faring adventures long ago. It will also teach them about the rich history of schooners in the Puget Sound which hauled fish and timber along the West Coast.

A remarkable team of retired carpenters from FORMA Construction, (many of whom worked on the construction of our Museum) stepped forward to lead the renovation from dilapidated vessel to engaging exhibit. In addition, hundreds of generous contributors have given small and large gifts to renovate this exciting new exhibit.
Thank you to our generous donors!
