See a recreated mariners' room circa 1900 as it might have looked in a part of the museum that was once a dormitory. Original furniture, bed linen, and chairs show how the retired seamen lived in Sailors' Snug Harbor, the oldest charitable institution in America. Several friends of the museum donated additional maritime artifacts of the period to complete the recreation.
