$3 – $10
144 W Main St, Waterbury, CT 06702 United States
This winter the Museum will host a three-part series that will dive deep into historic mysteries with the tale of Sir John Franklin. In 1845 Franklin led two of the Royal Navy’s best ships and a crew of 128 men into the Arctic seeking Northwestern passage. The expedition’s two ships disappeared, and the men were never heard from again. This discussion will be hosted by a Mystic Seaport Museum Educator. The mystery continues to unravel surrounding the 1845-48 disappearance of Franklin and his crew with a book club discussion of Beattie and Geiger’s Frozen in Time.
