Truly Interactive Learning

Take your students back to the 19th century, on the actual site where British warships docked, sailors and soldiers toiled, and settlers carved an existence out of the wilderness. Students of all ages love spending the day reliving history, and learning was never easier. For student (and parent) convenience our on-site restaurant offers lunch menu options.
