Permanent Exhibit

View the remains of the last American clipper ship in existence.
In the mid-19th century, American clipper ships astounded the maritime world with their amazingly swift passages to and from faraway seaports, bringing back exotic and valuable cargoes of tea, spices and silk. Over 300 such ships were built to profitably rush cargo from New York and Boston to California, Asia and Australia and return with teas, silks and spices. Of all of those American clippers, only one remains: the Maine-built Snow Squall.
