The Adventure Continues… Ships in a Bottle

Are you looking for a creative pastime with a long and fascinating history behind it? If you’re skilled at woodworking and gluing and you have good eyesight and plenty of patience and determination, building ships in a bottle just might be for you! I don’t think I would be able to sit still long enough to get all those tiny little pieces properly aligned — but I would really love to go back to the San Diego Maritime Museum and spend awhile wandering through this amazing collection.

Huell’s off to the Maritime Museum of San Diego to learn about building
ships in a bottle, an art form believed to have originated in the 18th
century. These tiny masterpieces are also important pieces of Maritime
history.
