Through its unmatched collection of Revolutionary-era weapons, personal items, documents, and works of art, the Museum considers the complexities of our nation’s history and uplifts stories that have gone untold.

A visit here culminates at the Wall of Names, which features forty white polished marble stones inscribed with the names of the passengers and crew. The Tower of Voices is conceived as a monumental, ninety-three feet tall musical instrument holding forty wind chimes, representing the forty passengers and crew members. The intent is to create a set of forty tones (voices) that can connote through consonance the serenity and nobility of the site. Lunch and Dinner on own en route to next hotel.
