Onrust - July 29

$28.00

The Connecticut River Museum is pleased to host the Onrust, for a season of sailing on the Connecticut River! Onrust is a reproduction of Adriaen Block's vessel- one of the first western style ships built in the New World, and the first known European ship to sail up the Connecticut River!

Built over several years in upstate New York using traditional plans and means, the Onrust is a wholly unique ship that serves to educate and entertain visitors curious about the age of exploration, the fur trade, and our early colonial history.

River cruises will be offered aboard Onrust Thursdays through Mondays. When not giving cruises, Onrust will be available for exploration while docked at the Museum (based on staff availability).

Learn more about the history of the Onrust and the construction of this amazing replica at the official website of the Onrust Project.

 

Regularly Scheduled Sailings for Museum Visitors

Museum visitors are entitled to a discounted admission of $5 with a purchase of a ticket to sail on the Onrust, except no admission will be charged for the 6 pm trips as the Museum is closed. * The six o'clock trip, sometimes referred to as the sunset cruise or cocktail cruise, tends to attract fewer children. Children accompanied by adults are never turned away but might be happier on cruises earlier in the day.
