Toys Ahoy! is a new and fun exhibit that connects the young and the young at heart. With 100 different items on display such as children’s books, games and toys, this exhibit will excite everyone of all ages! The collection includes wood and paper battleships, board games, card games, puzzles, motorized miniature engines and other historic toys and collectibles from years gone by.

Visitors can also partake in many fun activities to fulfill their inner kid joy, such as designing your own toy boat, playing an interactive game inspired by the Battle of Hampton Roads, taking pictures dressed to the nines in pirate play clothes, listening to stories, and learning about amazing facts from toy collectors and designers, and more!

For the holiday season, the Museum is proud to sponsor a maritime toy drive in conjunction with “Toys for Tots.”
