Take a step back in time with “Another Look: Marine Photography 1948-1972.” Beginning in 1948, The Mariners’ Museum and Park and the James River Camera Club co-hosted an annual juried exhibition of marine photography each spring, in which amateur and professional photographers submitted their prints illustrating man’s relationship with the sea. With each year’s expedition, the displayed photographs from local and international photographers became part of the Museum’s Library collection. This retrospective photography exhibition, open October 7 through April 1, 2018, presents a multitude of photographs collected from 1948 through 1972, exploring man’s connection to the ocean.

In February 2007, Newport News City Council affirmed Greifswald, Germany, as its third official Sister City. Sister City relationships offer the flexibility to form connections between communities that are mutually beneficial and which address issues that are most relevant for each city. This photography exhibition, open October 7, 2017 through January 7, 2018, recognizes the 10th anniversary of the Newport News–Greifswald relationship. These images were created by eight photographers who live and work in the region.

The museum is open daily, Monday – Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. General admission for adults is $13.95, seniors (65 ) $12.95, military (with valid ID) $12.95, children (4-12) $8.95.
