SeeWorthy: Modeling Maritime Archaeology Exhibit

View ship construction through the eyes of maritime archaeologists in SeeWorthy, a new exhibit from Alexandria Archaeology highlighting the technology used to digitally reconstruct historic vessels. Recent development along the waterfront has led to significant discoveries by archaeologists, including the remains of four historic ships. These remnants have been laser scanned to create models showing what they would have looked like in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Scale models of the three historic vessels from the Robinson Landing Site will be on view in the new SeeWorthy exhibit on the first floor of the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Visit between April 1 and June 5 to find out how archaeologists use these digital and physical models to compare ship construction and to answer questions about the age and use of the vessels.

Exhibit is open weekly from April 1 through June 5:

  • Wednesday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
