Calling all toddlers, tots, and preschoolers ages 2-6! The rangers at Salem Maritime National Historic Site invite you to attend free monthly storytime and activity sessions around the park! Bring your favorite adults and learn about the special places, objects, living things, and stories the National Park Service protects. Create crafts to take home each time and receive a special prize for attending all six sessions! No reservations required. Meet at Waite and Peirce (193 Derby Street), our park store. See complete schedule below:


September 25: Dig up objects that tell us about Salem’s history in our archaeology box. Draw a picture of your findings to go in our museum case. Then, go see real artifacts at the Narbonne House. (Book: Archaeologists Dig for Clues by Kate Duke).

October 16: Learn what it was like to live at sea! Explore sailors’ sea chests and make your own pennant flag. (Book: The Merry Shipwreck by George Duplaix).
