The Queen Mary set a new bar in luxury ocean liner travel – and new speed records – when she sailed from Southampton, England to New York in May 1936. In her heyday, the majestic art deco liner boasted five dining areas and lounges, two cocktail bars and swimming pools, a grand ballroom, and even a small hospital, and captivated the American and British imagination.

Join maritime scholar Bill Miller for an illustrated lecture on the storied Cunard liner’s 80-year history as a passenger vessel, as a World War II troopship, and now as a historic hotel.

Co-sponsored by the New York Art Deco Society. $15 for Museum and NYADS members; $25 general public.

Join us at the Eco Dock after work or school for a free, open-house fishing clinic! American Littoral Society staff will guide small groups on the dock, teaching you how to tie and cast your line, and then reel in your catch! October is one of the best months for fishing, and this event is perfect for families. No reservations required - please check in with the MWA representative at the gate when you arrive.

The American Littoral Society promotes the study and conservation of marine life and habitat, protects the coast from harm, and empowers others to do the same. They specialize in hands-on education, encouraging students young and old to develop not just an interest, but a passion for the coast.
