The USS Constitution Museum is pleased to announce that Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance will sponsor all public school visits to the museum from Sept. 2012 to June 2015, thus allowing for free field trips for students of all ages, in and outside of Massachusetts. Public schools that participate in the Liberty Mutual Insurance-sponsored field trips will have access to a range of fun and educational experiences, using the historic naval vessel, USS Constitution and its crew as a lens for understanding the War of 1812. Through programs geared toward various grade levels-from pre-school through 12th grade-students can explore the excitement of "shipboard life" and the concept that ordinary people, working together towards a common goal, can have a direct and powerful impact on the nation's future. To learn more about the USS Constitution Museum and its field trip activities, please visit www.ussconstitutionmuseum.org/. Please note that field trips must be scheduled in advance, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
