Get on board the Onrust this year, and you will go back in time to when Dutch explorer and merchant Adriaen Block sailed Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River on a ship he built in New York in 1613-1614. The replica ship, built by The Onrust Project in Rotterdam, near Albany, will be docked at the Connecticut River Museum from June 1 to early October. During this time the museum will offer cruises and dockside tours. To find out more visit the Connecticut River Museum’s website at ctrivermuseum.org.
