“Shipwreck! Wrecks of the North Atlantic”
July 20th 2018
Curated by diver Gene Peterson of Wreck Adventures, the exhibit tells the harrowing tales of ships and lives lost to the mighty waters of the Atlantic through the use of artifacts taken from the ocean’s floor. Artifacts from wrecks up and down the northern Atlantic coast from the Cape May area to Maine were personally recovered by Peterson during his 50 year diving career. Of special interest are artifacts recovered from the long lost S.S. Miraflores sunk by a German submarine patrolling off the coast of Cape May County in February 1942. This exhibition is free and open to the public during The Museum’s normal business hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. For additional information please contact The Museum at 609-465-3535
