Did you know Museum Park in Downtown Miami is opening to the public this Saturday? To celebrate this occasion, “America’s Tall Ship,” the U.S. Coast Guard Barque EAGLE, will be docked at Museum Park from Saturday, June 14 through Tuesday, June 17. It then will be open for free public tours from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 1 to 7:30 p.m. on Sunday and Monday.

USCGC Eagle is the sixth U.S. Coast Guard cutter to bear the name in a proud line dating back to 1792. The ship was built in 1936 by the Blohm and Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany, and commissioned as Horst Wessel. (Five identical sister ships were also built.) For more information, click here.
