USS Constitution logo.jpgWhat better place to celebrate and honor our veterans this year than at the USS Constitution Museum? During your visit, you'll be able to write letters to our troops for the holidays, decide whether you would sign on board USS Constitution during the War of 1812, and make a paper officer's hat to take home. While you're there, you can experience what life was like for our early naval forces in the hands-on, interactive exhibits. On November 11th, silhouette artist Carol Lebeaux will be on hand to cut portrait silhouettes similar to those sailors may have brought aboard ship to remember their loved ones by. These make great holiday gifts! She can cut from live subjects or from profile photographs of people or pets. Sittings last less than 5 minutes and you can take home your completed artwork in less than twenty minutes. Sat., Nov. 10 - Mon., Nov. 12, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. All ages. The Museum has a suggested donation of $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, and $2 for children; however, any amount is greatly appreciated. Registration suggested for silhouettes; call 617-426-1812. Walk-in appointments will be provided as available. Each silhouette is $33, duplicate cuts are available for $12 or free for Museum members. USS Constitution Museum, Charlestown Navy Yard,
