Based on the USS Constitution Museum’s award-winning in-person exhibit All Hands on DeckJoin the Crew is an immersive, research-based online experience that integrates humanities themes with dynamic interactive elements for a virtual audience. The exhibit uses artifact imagery, video shorts, games, quizzes, and at-home activities to explore the lives of real USS Constitution crew members and their families during the War of 1812. Join the Crew brings the USS Constitution Museum to you!

Join the Crew is a project of the USS Constitution Museum.


The USS Constitution Museum team used their combined expertise in graphic design, web development, exhibit design, videography, maritime history, square rig sailing, and material culture to design and create this online exhibit.
