The San Mateo County History Museum announces the reopening of its popular exhibit gallery, Charles Parsons’ Ships of the World, on Sunday, March 16, 2014. The gallery is going through an upgrade that includes new murals, interactive activities, video presentations and graphics. This project is made possible by a grant from the Christensen Family Foundation.
The gallery will still feature the 24 beautiful model ships crafted by expert model maker Charles Parsons (1917-2004), who lived in San Carlos.
The opening on March 16 will be free to the public. Festivities will include special children’s crafts and nautical entertainments during the museum’s Maritime Day,
