Educational Charters on the American Spirit

Unique to the National Capital region, American Spirit offers three-hour educational tours exploring the maritime life of Washingtonians in the 1800’s. 

This program allows students to gain a greater appreciation for the history of maritime Washington while moving through a variety of learning stations that reinforce classroom subjects including mathematics, physics, geography, etc. 

American Spirit functions as a learning museum, presenting the critical role that sailing vessels played in the development of America through hands-on experiences. Topics covered include inclusion of STEM curriculum with flora and fauna studies and an awareness of our fragile waterway systems.
