Navy Days

Night at the Museum: Shipwrecked

Thursday August 24th from 7-9pm at 55 Ontario St

It was a calm, clear night when the SS Comet set sail across the Great Lakes. Like many nights such as these, it was smooth sailing as far as the eye could see. Who would have guessed that in just a matter of hours, the ship would sink below the waves of Lake Ontario, taking all but a few of her passengers with her. Will you go down with the ship or succeed in reaching a lifeboat? 
Join us for the Marine Museum's FIRST Night at the Museum event in partnership with Something In The Water Brewing and find out. For this murder-mystery style event, ticket holders are encouraged to  take part in the interactive activity to discover their fate while engaging with the Museum's exhibits and activities.
Please note that this is an 18+ event.
