Join us for a performance that will feature music from ‘Fishsticks, Fishsticks, Fishsticks’. This playful selection of tunes and activities is inspired by life in and around the sea. Families will be encouraged to participate through songs, movement and games. From simple tunes about different characteristics of whales, to a near epic-length shanty about seasickness, there will be much to learn and laugh about when the Sunny Fishcakes’ Music Revue comes to the Museum. All this and ice cream, too!

The Waterline Center is handicap-accessible.

About the Essex Shipbuilding Museum

The Essex Shipbuilding Museum tells the extraordinary story of a small New England village that built more two-masted wooden fishing schooners than any other place in the world. Preserving the history of the wooden shipbuilding industry, an integral part of the economy and culture in New England and the United States since the 1630’s, the Museum maintains one of the best maritime collections in the region. Museum projects have built or interpreted schooners, Chebacco boats, sailing lighters, dories and privateers. The last intact American fishing schooner, the Evelina M. Goulart is currently being preserved and documented. Innovative, experiential educational programs teach concepts through a rich mix of content knowledge and hands-on activities for children, adults, seniors and educators from around the world. Located in the heart of Essex, Massachusetts and integral to the town’s historic character, scenic vista and river basin, the Museum features antique shipbuilding tools, photographs, documents, and exhibits portraying the shipbuilding industry. Tours include video presentations and hands-on activities. A gift shop offers ship plans, maritime books, and other nautical memorabilia.
