Take a journey through a porthole to history by bringing your students aboard the historic Queen Mary for your next field trip. Bring world history and art to life with an exciting, educational visit to this historic ocean liner and World War II troop transport ship.
A trip to the legendary Queen Mary encourages classroom lectures and discussions regarding her history, artwork, technological achievement and historical impact on society. The Queen Mary holds one of the world's single largest collections of original Art Deco works and décor.
Learn about her construction, launching, maiden voyage, service in World War II and final voyage to her current home in Long Beach, California. Explore the Engine Room and discover the huge boiler tanks that produced enough steam for the turbine engines to propel the Queen Mary to speed records for transatlantic crossings she held for 14 years. Students will visit the Propeller Box and see the last remaining propeller on the Queen Mary, explore the Queen Mary’s various decks and salons and visit the ship’s Engine Room, Infirmary and Bridge, as well as learn various nautical terms.
Students will tour the legendary Queen Mary with an educational one-hour guided tour and then will have the freedom to explore the ship at their own pace with the Self-Guided Shipwalk Tour. Learn the history of the Queen Mary while strolling the decks and hearing the stories behind the pictures and the artwork of the legendary ship. From her groundbreaking construction to her royal launch, this tour is a great way to get to know the real Queen Mary up-close and personal.
Stay aboard the Queen Mary overnight for an educational experience your students will never forget. Students will stay in sleeping bags in one of our historical salons and experience the Queen Mary in a completely unique way.
