Set Sail to the Maritime Museum!

March 1, 2024

Students in 3rd and 4th grade explored the U.S. Brig Niagara while on their field trip to the Erie Maritime Museum.

"We had a great time on our field trip today! We learned all about the Brig Niagara, pulleys and some history of Erie. What a fun time!"- Mrs. Nye, teacher

The U.S. Brig Niagara, home-ported in Erie, Pennsylvania, is a faithful reconstruction of Oliver Hazard Perry’s relief flagship during the Battle of Lake Erie. An embodiment of the dual mission of the Erie Maritime Museum and Flagship Niagara League, she serves as the centerpiece exhibit of the Erie Maritime Museum as well as a sail training vessel, part of an experiential learning program to preserve the art of historic square-rig seamanship.
