Saturday celebration: Model ships gallery upgraded

 

A celebration marking completion of an upgrade of the Ships of the World gallery at the San Mateo County History Museum will be held Saturday, April 11.

The gallery's $58,000 upgrade includes new interactive activities, video presentations, graphics and murals. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. followed by children's crafts between 1 and 4 p.m.

The gallery features 24 model ships fashioned by the late Charles Parsons. The ships are a collection representing Mr. Parson's interest in maritime history, from a Greek warship of 500 BC to a World War II destroyer.

The museum is located at 2200 Broadway in the historic Old Courthouse in Redwood City.
