Maritime Day

The 13th Annual Maritime Day will be held at the History Museum on Saturday, April 28 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. The day highlights the Charles Parsons’ Ships of the World exhibit that includes 24 model ships handcrafted by Charles Parsons.


Kids will be able to design their own model ship, build a model lighthouse, design their own signal flag and create cargo similar to what came to California on 19th century sailing ships.

Steam Fest:

Maritime Day will be held in conjunction with the STEAM Fest, presented by the Redwood City Library Foundation. Held on Courthouse Square, this festival aims to introduce kids and adults to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).  The booths and activities encourage kids to see themselves as scientists, artists, creators and inventors.

Inside the museum, the San Mateo County Office of Education will be doing a Cardboard City activity in Courtroom A.
