All About Steam Weekend

Saturday, September 19 - Sunday, September 20

This weekend we will feature the Seaport's "steam" exhibit and offer a STEAM event geared to area families and steam enthusiast... We are thrilled to welcome back the Northwest Steam Society who will bring a collection of their steamers to moor at the Seaport's dock. The boat owners plan to share their steamers with Museum guests, demo and explain how they work, plus answer all your "steam" questions. They will provide plenty of steam whistle sounds to support this event.
