Onrust River Cruises
July 30, 2019

Sail on the Onrust from June 20 through Mid October

The Connecticut River Museum hosts the Onrust, a re-creation of the vessel Adriaen Block built in 1614.  Now in its fourth year on our docks, Onrust is available for public cruises and private charters.

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 are offered Thursdays through Mondays. While at dock, the Onrust is available for exploration. (based on staff availability)
