Family Day: Liberty Ships

Liberty ships and the US Merchant Marine were an important reason the Allied forces won World War II. Drop by the Houston Maritime Museum to discover the stories behind these "ugly duckling" ships, and the brave men aboard them. In this engaging, hands-on Family Day, children will decorate unique Liberty T-shirts just in time to wear for July 4th! They will also create festive crafts to honor our freedoms that the Merchant Marines and Liberty ships fought to protect.
