Not that Humane society.  This one just rescued humans.

They have great model ship exhibits

And an entire room of small craft boats from the last few centuries


This one looked like a floating nest!

Some of us reminded us of Disney's Moana that we saw the day before.

Long live the king!


A pretty nice Gondola

Submarine torpedo and a James Bond boat!

Some other cool looking boats

Grandma points out something...  probably a boat!

This one was made with skins!  ewww!  and this one is from Michigan!

This dorky looking little one sailed across the Atlantic like 3 times!

Back in the model ship section and next to a Narwhal tooth

Anya can't keep her head out of cannons.  It's a serious condition called "Wyle. E. Coyote Syndrome"
