Admission: free

Join the crew for a memorable 10 - 15 minute deck tour of Kalmar Nyckel.  Our crew will talk with guests about the ship, its special place in history and what made it unique in 1638 and today.  Kids can ring our ship's bell, march around the capstan, and steer the ship using the whipstaff (1630's helm technology predating the wheel).  Check out her carvings from the dock before you step aboard.  The stern carvings are all newly-painted with period-correct hues, and our gilded figurehead, "Leo the Lion," shows his fierce teeth!
