USS Monitor Virtual Artifact Collection

The USS Monitor Virtual Artifact Collection is a collaborative partnership between The Mariners' Museum and Park in Newport News, VA, and NOAA's Monitor National Marine Sanctuary to share the USS Monitor's artifacts with the public. This virtual collection will act as a public resource to display many of the artifacts in pre- and post-treatment status to highlight the benefits of conservation and the science behind the conservation process. Explore the collection to learn more about the USS Monitor's artifacts and the stories these historic treasures can tell about the U.S. Civil War and life at sea in the 1860's.
