The Connecticut River Museum is pleased to welcome Onrust, a replica of Adriaen Block’s vessel- one of the first western style ships built in the New World, and the first ever to sail up the Connecticut River.
 
Built over several years in upstate New York using traditional plans and means, the Onrust is a wholly unique ship that serves to educate and entertain visitors curious about the age of exploration, the fur trade, and our early colonial history.
 
River cruises will be offered aboard Onrust Thursdays through Mondays.  When not giving cruises, Onrust will be available for exploration while docked at the Connecticut River Museum.
 
Learn more about the history of the Onrust and the construction of this amazing replica at the official website of the Onrust Project.
